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
