The Internet of things is a vision.
It is being built today by the likes of the people at Makey Makey. MaKey MaKey is an invention kit for the 21st century. It turns everyday objects into touchpads and combines them with the internet. It’s a simple Invention Kit for doing art, engineering, and everything in between.
If you want to learn to use Arduino or other electronics, but want to start without any programming or breadboarding, MaKey MaKey is a good starting point. There’s no need to understand Arduino in order to use MaKey MaKey. For $39.99 it’s pretty neat.
Below is a short clip of something simple and fun happening at Quantum Victoria this morning. Enjoy.
