Makey Makey

One of Soren's friends got him a Makey Makey for his birthday. It's a circuit board that masquerades as a USB keyboard. You can turn anything that is mildly conductive into a key by attaching it to the Makey Makey with an alligator clip. Then, if you ground yourself, you can generate a key press by touching the "key." In the pic below, Soren has grounded himself by putting his foot on some foil that we've attached to the ground on the Makey Makey, and is playing an electronic piano using six keys made of Brussels sprouts, a half onion, some mandarin slices, and a piece of lemon.
