Release date: July 28th, 2017

This hands-on guide is filled with DIY projects that show readers, step-by-step, how to start creating and making cool inventions with the Makey Makey invention kit. Each project features easy-to-follow, fully-illustrated instructions and detailed photographs of the finished gadget. Readers will see how to apply these skills and start building their own Makey Makey projects.

20 Makey Makey Projects for the Evil Genius starts off with very approachable introductory projects, making it a great starting point for beginners. It then builds to more challenging projects, allowing more experienced users to go further by incorporating technologies like Raspberry Pi, Processing and Scratch programming, 3D Printing, and creating wearable electronics with Makey Makey.

Projects are divided into four wicked and inventive categories: “Fun and Games,” Interactive,” Hacks and Pranks,” and “Makey Makey Go.”

• No prior programming or technical experience is required
• Basic enough for beginners, but challenging enough for advanced makers
• Written by two educators who believe in fostering creative innovation for all

Over the next couple of weeks, Aaron and I will be releasing some video clips of our evil Makey Makey projects. This first video is some of our favorite one banana projects. These are great entry level projects for makers who want to utilize Makey Makey’s plug and play capability.  How would you hack these projects?

This is one of my favorite projects in our #evilmakeybook ! Last February, Jay Silver taught me how to make a gesture-controlled Scratch program and I am stoked to share the instructions in our #evilmakeybook! Check out how it works! How will you incorporate this in your next Scratch game?
