  • Thanks for the prompt delivery! My kickstarter makey maker is working a treat. I was wondering; can you power the makey makey externally via the 5v line on the expansion header or is that only for sinking power? I understand the iPad UBS camera connection kit works with many keyboards but not if they draw too much power (as some users have found with makey makey), so I’d like to try powering the makey makey from an external source. Would I need to disconnect the USB 5v source? Thanks

No public wish lists :(
