Makey Makey GO allows today’s tinkerers, dreamers, and makers the mobility to invent anytime, anywhere.

Makey Makey GO enables you to invent on the go – and change the world – with the snap of an alligator clip, transforming everyday objects into Internet touchpads. Small enough to fit on your keychain or in your pocket, Makey Makey GO promises to inspire even more science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) projects than the original, award-winning Makey Makey – named one of Consumer Reports’ “Best Tech Toys of 2014.”

Jay Silver is the Founder/CEO of JoyLabz/Makey Makey and was the first ever Maker Research Scientist at Intel. Jay’s MIT PhD topic was World as Construction Kit. He made many creative platforms such as Drawdio and Makey Makey. Jay has been a speaker at many TED events, exhibited artwork internationally, and been named a Top 100 Inspirational World Changer by DELL. He sits on the board of directors of Maker Ed, One Day on Earth, and Sunseed Food. Jay works with teens at places like Not Back to School Camp, and he believes that being a romantic is of the utmost importance.
