What is it?

The Malarkey Board allows you to turn almost anything into a computer keyboard and mouse. Without any programming or soldering, you can create your own game controllers and custom interfaces for your computer.

The Malarkey Board is a 32-bit ARM implementation of the amazing MakeyMakey created by Jay Silver and Eric Rosenbaum.

It works on OSX, Windows and Linux. The project is also opensource and you can find the github page here.

MOUSE CONTROLS

How does it work?

The Malarkey Board works exactly like The MakeyMakey straight 'out-of-the-box'. Just by connecting one or more of the inputs to the 'earth' (even with your fingers) you can start creating your own custom interfaces for your computer.

Mouse and Keyboard Emulation
The Malarkey Boards emulates 12 different keyboard keys: w, a, s, d, f, g, space bar and the 4 arrow keys. As well as the mouse's movement (up/down left/right), 'left-click' and 'right-click' mouse buttons.
Touch Sensing
The Malarkey Board allows you to use almost any object that is slightly conductive to make a connection between the on-board 'input' and 'earth' connectors, to control your mouse and keyboard.
32-bit ARM
The Malarkey Board is a re-implementation of The Makey Makey and it is based on a 32-bit ARM Microcontroller. It has been designed and assembled in Johannesburg, South Africa
