Hack a banana to make a keyboard

Why can’t two slices of pizza be used as a slide clicker? Why shouldn’t you make music with ketchup? In this charming talk, inventor Jay Silver talks about the urge to play with the world around you. He shares some of his messiest inventions, and demos MaKey MaKey, a kit for hacking everyday objects. And while we neither want to advertise products nor encourage you to play with food, we love the idea of playing with the world around us and allowing ourselves to be creative about the natural purpose of things.
