Plug your board and get inputs into your Meemoo app

Hacking Activity

So we have this place where we can program dragging and dropping nodes and connecting them with coloured cables: Meemoo.

Also there is this sweet board that goes well with bananas: MakeyMakey.

Let's mix Meemoo and MakeyMakey to create a new interactive Web app!

Steps:

  1. You will need a computer running Meemoo, a MakeyMakey board and a big cup of creativity juice.

  2. Open this Meemoo app clicking here.

  3. Plug-in your MakeyMakey board into your computer USB port.

  4. Connect a wire in the earth of MakeyMakey and another into space.

  5. Use your creativity to attach the other end of wires (use bananas, your body, skate, surf board...).

  6. Look at the Meemoo app, do you see the magic happening?

  7. Play with the boxes in the Meemoo app, change values, add new boxes, do whatever you want in this big canvas!

  8. Save your app and share! Send to your friends and hack together with them a new Meemoo app. Remix it and keep sharing!
