Here is another interesting Kickstarter project called MaKey MaKey, which offers an invention kit for everyone. With this kit it should be possible for everybody to try technology and to invent funny applications, such as using everyday objects as touchscreens or to play on a banana piano. It is a nice simple concept for artists, children and adults who are doing some experiments.
Modkit Micro is a graphical programming environment for microcontrollers. Microcontrollers allow programmers and engineers to add behaviors to everyday objects and electronic gadgets.
Modkit Micro helps almost anyone to make almost anything smarter through a simple, yet powerful visual programming interface. Modkit Micro is based on years of research at the MIT Media Lab including the popular Scratch project, so it will look familiar to the over 1 million kids and novice programmers who have already been introduced to Scratch.
They’re launching Modkit Micro on Kickstarter to produce copies of the desktop version on a flash drive and to provide early access to the online version to our supporters.
