Cardboard, tin foil, Makey Makey…this is all you need to create your own game controller! For kids/teenagers from 7 to 14.

Step 1: Pick a game (from a selection I brought or from the programming workshop)

Step 2: Imagine the silliest game controller

Step 3: Build the controller using cardboard and tin foil

Step 4: Connect with makey makey

Step 5: Play!

A few controllers made during those workshops:

A whole Makey Makey band (keyboard, microphone, guitar)

Sword + shield controller

a boxing controller
