This Gizmo Turns Anything Into A Touchpad, Even Bananas! (Video)

Did you ever play piano on bananas or Super Mario on play-doh? Well, the time has arrived where instead of using the computer keyboard buttons to play the piano, these guys hooked up the Makey Makey to something fun, like bananas, and the bananas become your piano keys. 

So, what is this Makey Makey?

Makey Makey is an invention kit, invented by Jay Silver And Eric Rosenbaum of MIT Media Labs. It can turn everyday objects into touchpads and combine them with the internet. It's a simple Invention Kit for Beginners and Experts doing art, engineering, and everything in between.

How awesome would that be? I know, right?

Let's check out this banana piano and many more awesome innovative products made with the help of Makey Makey.
