ShrimpKey - Make Your Own MakeyMakey-substitute for Less Than 10 USD

Intro: ShrimpKey - Make Your Own MakeyMakey-substitute for Less Than 10 USD

Use as much as 9 everyday (conductive) objects (i.e. fruits, vegetable, tin foil) and make your own keypad, keyboard or game controller for Scratch (scratch.mit.edu) or any other game.

The ShrimpKey is a MakeyMakey-substitute which you can make for less than $10.
It's made of a Shrimp (shrimping.it) - an Arduino-substitute - and acts like a true keyboard (so no drivers needed to play with it).

Full detailed (photo) instructions can be found on my blog fromScratchEd.nl (in English and Dutch).

I got a question, in order for this to work do you need power going to the Shrimp or can the usb going to the shrimpkey shield power the shrimp?

The ShrimpKey-shield powers the Shrimp. I've a new version of it. More inputs, mouse movements and many other improvements. If you follow me on Twitter (@fromScratchEd) you'll be notified when I'd time to update my blog ;-)
