Description: The MaKey MaKey is really cool, but wouldn’t it be cooler if it wasn’t tethered to your computer? There’s only one way to find out: Go wireless.
Our Bluetooth & LiPo Add-On for MaKey MaKey frees your MaKey invention from the bonds of USB wired connection. Data is passed over a Bluetooth HID connection to your Bluetooth enabled computer which will recognize it as a Bluetooth wireless keyboard. Power is handled through a 2-pin JST connector, simply connect any of our 3.7V lithium-polymer batteries. If the MaKey MaKey is plugged in using USB, the Bluetooth & LiPo Add-On will use that source to charge any connected LiPo battery!
To get this thing up and running, you will need to upload some special code to your MaKey MaKey so some Arduino knowledge is recommended. Check out the wiki below for more information.
Note: This Add-On board does not include a LiPo battery, check the related items below for compatible batteries! If your computer doesn’t have Bluetooth, no worries, check out the Bluetooth USB Module in the related items!
