I gave this workshop as part of Gamerella 2018, which I was also co-organizing. See the event description bellow.
📢 !!NO!! EXPERIENCE NEEDED 📢
Turn everyday household items into buttons and touchpads with Makey Makey! It’s a simple and accessible tool for beginners ideal for both quick prototyping and long-term projects. In this workshop, we’ll use all sorts of funky materials to make our own DIY controllers! Bring objects from home: anything that conducts electricity or that you would like to use as a game controller! Silverware, fruits, plushies, clothes, dogs! No experience needed!
Workshop leader: Liane Decary-Chen
