Makey Makey backpacks have invention appeal! Attach any one of these three backpack boards to the black pin headers on the back of your Makey Makey (v.1.4 and higher only!) to access its full set of features. Add a second player to your games, find creative ways to control your computer mouse, and take your inventions to the MAX!
What Are Backpacks?
Ever since the first version of the Makey Makey there have been expansion headers on the back of the board. If you have your Makey Makey handy, go ahead and flip the board over and take a look. The headers are those black rectangle things that stick out with holes in them. Many people overlook them or don’t even realize they are there, let alone learn how to use them to maximize the potential of their Makey Makey!
Makey Makey Backpacks are expansion boards that are designed to make it easy for everyone to use Makey Makey to its full potential and expand their invention toolbox! Backpacks plug into the black headers on the back of the Makey Makey board, giving you access to all of those input keys that sometimes get overlooked. Now -- in addition to the 6 inputs on the front -- the 12 inputs on the back of the board can be easily connected into your project with alligator-friendly “gator bites.”
Player 2 Backpack
Ever wanted to add a second player? Plug in this backpack to instantly double your game controls and double the fun! Enable player 2 with this gameriffic backpack and create custom game controllers along with friends.
Makey Mouse Backpack
What if you could make a mouse out of cheese? The Makey Mouse Backpack breaks out your mouse controls to “gator bites” so you can easily clip to fun items for unique drag-and-drop experiences.
Makey Max Backpack
Want to pump up your projects? Take your inventions to the MAX with the Makey Max Backpack. This backpack enables inventors to alligator clip to the 12 inputs on the back, making the full Makey Makey board accessible for all inventors. It’s the ultimate in extreme inventing!
