Now you can make a controller/UI out of a banana, most stuff.


So that the console controller might eventually be spared its grimy-kids-toy aesthetic, grad students at MIT have made a circuit board that will turn any conductor in the natural world into a device for play. The MaKey MaKey uses alligator clips to carry your electronic touch to the board and then to a computer—this means a real mouse, water, stairs, your friend’s back, or your cat’s tail can become mouse-left-click, keyboard keys, spacebar, etc. Play carefully—the natural world is delicate, and much of it is living.
