Makey Makey is a plate that acts like a keyboard. Through its cables with crocodile clips transmits the electricity of the objects on the Make Makey board and the board in the computer. In this way we can get different objects to be like a keyboard key and to make the corresponding order. We will use some programs that make music and we will develop them with Scratch; therefore, the objects you use will make sounds when you touch them.
