  • I have the same question. The MaKey MaKey website definitely says “This would allow you to spin motors…”, but we have yet to see clear instructions on how to do so.

    I’ve just written a program that allows me to turn a DC motor (salvaged from an old printer) on/off each time I press a button - and it works great, except for the low voltage. Sometimes I have to give the motor spindle a push to get it to start, and its not even under any load yet. It goes just fine when connected to a battery though :(

No public wish lists :(
