Dos estudiantes del Instituto de Tecnología de Massachusetts (MIT, por sus siglas en inglés), en Estados Unidos, se aburrieron de los teclados de sus computadoras y decidieron inventar un dispositivo que permite que cualquier cosa se convierta en uno.

Desde una banana o plastilina, hasta un papel o las escaleras de la casa se pueden convertir en teclas que envían ordenes a la computadora, gracias al proyecto Makey Makey, que transforma cualquier cosa en un nuevo teclado muy original.

El proyecto creado por los estudiantes Jay Silver y Eric Rosenbaum fue lanzado en Kickstarter, un sitio web de financiamiento de proyectos, donde cualquier persona puede compartir su invención y pedir que usuarios en todo el mundo ayuden a financiarlo con aportes que van desde $ 1.

Makey Makey se propuso como objetivo recaudar a través de este portal $ 25.000 en financiamiento. Faltan once días para que termine su plazo en el sitio web y ya logró más de $ 358.000.

"Creemos que cualquier persona puede ser creativa, inventora e imaginativa", publican los estudiantes en el portal de Kickstarter. "Creemos que cualquiera puede crear el futuro y cambiar el mundo, por eso hemos decidido dedicar nuestras vidas a hacer invenciones fáciles de usar".

"Otros materiales que pueden funcionar bien son: plantas, monedas, tu abuela, cubiertos, cualquier cosa que este mojada, casi toda la comida, gatos y perros, pepel aluminio, lluvia y cientos más", agregan.

La forma como trabaja este dispositivo es través de un pequeño tablero electrónico, conectado mediante un cable USB y finos cables de pinzas conductores de electricidad. Funciona con Windows y Mac.
