Meet Makey Makey…The Most Unique Holiday Gift That Will Unleash Imaginations Everywhere

 

Have you ever played Mario on Play-Doh or the piiano on bananas?  Chances are, probably not.  But with the help of Makey Makey, you can alligator clip the Internet to your world and start inventing the future.  Makey Makey is an invention kit for the 21st century that can turn everyday objects into touchpads and combine them with the internet.  It’s a simple invention kit that’s great for all skill levels, whether you’re a beginner or an expert.

 

 

So…how does Makey Makey work?

Alligator Clip two objects to the Makey Makey board. For example, you could place a clip on yourself, and a clip on a banana.   When you touch the banana, you make a connection, and Makey Makey sends the computer a keyboard message and the computer just thinks Makey Makey is a regular keyboard (or mouse). This allows Makey Makey to work with all programs and webpages, because all programs and webpages take keyboard and mouse input.  How cool is that?

 

What can you make with Makey Makey?

 

That’s up to you!  First, load up a computer program or any webpage (yes that’s right, you’re surfing the internet to invent).  Let’s say you load up a piano. Iinstead of using the computer keyboard buttons to play the piano, you can hook up the Makey Makey to something fun, like bananas, kiwis, tomoatoes…anything really, and the various everyday objects become your piano keys!!

 

 

Want to play your favorite Mario game with a controller made of Play Doh?  Yeap, you can do that too!  No matter what idea it is that you can dream up in the amazing mind of yours, you can bring it to fruition with the help of Makey Makey.

You might be asking yourself, what materials work with Makey Makey?  Well, the possibilities are endless there too!   Any material that can conduct at least a tiny bit of electricity will work (if it doesn’t already work, just rub it with bananas, spray it with water, or apply copper tape).  Some favorite materials to use Makey Makey with are: ketchup, pencil graphite, finger paint, lemons, you name it!  Other materials that work great are: plants, coins, your grandma, silverware, anything that is wet, most foods, cats and dogs, aluminum foil, rain, and hundreds more!

 

 

If you’ve got someone on your holiday shopping list that loves to create new things all the time, you can’t go wrong with Makey Makey.  Whether you’re looking for a great stocking stuffer or a present that will bring hours of fun Makey Makey has got you covered!

The EyeVac Home Is The PERFECT Holiday Helper!

 

If you’re looking for a great way to help with the holiday mess this year, you have to check out the EyeVac Home!  This little stationary, touchless vacuum eliminates the need for a dust pan and leaves floors SUPER clean!  With so much going on during the holiday season the last thing I want to do is take more time cleaning than I have to.  This Christmas, the EyeVac Home is my magic little helper and after just a very short time with it, I don’t know how I ever lived without it before!

 

EyeVac Home is perfect for the kitchen, den, dining room, mud room, work shop, dorm, garage or any room with a hard floor.  The EyeVac Home stands up to tough challenges including pet hair, cat litter, dirt, mud, dust and even whole pieces of cereal and pet food.  Anyone that uses a broom can use the EyeVac, and it has even made having the children pitch in to help with chores much less of a nightmare.

 

 

With a sleek and contemporary design, EyeVac Home fits seamlessly into any house, condo or apartment.  Simply sweep debris towards the unit, and the infrared sensors automatically activate the vacuum, leaving you with a clean floor.  In addition to the “touchless” cleaning action, Eye Vac’s HEPA filtration returns clean air to your environment, free of dust, allergens and air born irritants making this a must-have for homes with allergy sufferers.  Choose the automatic setting for touchless activation or switch to the manual mode to allow activation upon demand by simply pushing the ‘activate’ button.  Suction compacts debris, maximizing the canister space which is already quite large so you don’t have to worry about emptying the contents often.  The full indicator lets you know when it’s time to empty the canister so no need to pop it open and check all the time, pretty convenient right?

Here are some of the EyeVac Home features that you’ll absolutely love:

  • Powerful 1200-Watt cyclonic motor easily removes all types of debris from your floor.
  • 3 Litre / 0.65 Gallon bag-less canister and HEPA filters means less time emptying and more time cleaning.
  • HEPA dual filtration system ensures a clean floor as well as clean air.
  • No need to purchase extra accessories.
  • Indicator light shines when the canister is full and it is time to empty.
  • Choose between Eye Vac Home’s Auto and Manual modes.
  • Cleans up mess within a 7-second vacuum cycle and then shuts off automatically.
