How to make a Pumpkin Piano (using a Makey Makey)

Watch more with these video collections:

How do you make a piano out of pumpkins? In this autumnal video, Maddie Moate and Greg Foot create a pumpkin piano with the help of a Makey Makey plug, clip, and play invention kit. We also get a quick tutorial about how circuits work, specifically how a lightbulb works.

If you’d like to make your own pumpkin, persimmon, peach, pear, potato, banana or other kind of piano, Moate included a link to the Makey Makey program they used here. You can get your own Makey Makey kit on MakeyMakey.com or on Amazon. There’s also the Makey Makey GO for smaller projects.

Next, watch j.viewz play music with fruit, vegetables, & Makey Makey and The AgIC marker draws circuits with conductive ink.
