shield uses touch input, namely, a double-contact switch, leading out touch port and ground connected to two touch electrodes. It uses an ARDUINO microcontroller to simulate a keyboard, and lead out several keys, replacing the switch with a touch key.
The shield uses touch input, namely, a double-contact switch, leading out touch port and ground connected to two touch electrodes. Because of body resistance, when you touch the two electrodes, there is a certain current flowing through between them, so can detect the touch event through the current detection.11cm x 11cm x 2cm
MaKey MaKey is a very simple circuit board that can make any objects as a computing input device.
That’s to say, it can make stairway into a piano, bananas into a keyboard, plasticine into a joystick or even your families into a musical synthesizer.
The principle is simple. It uses an ARDUINO microcontroller to simulate a keyboard, and lead out several keys, replacing the switch with a touch key.
Arduino shields are the boards, which are plugged over the Arduino board to expand its functionalities. For example, Ethernet shields are used to connect the Arduino board to the Internet. The pin position of the shields is similar to the Arduino boards.

Arduino is an open-source hardware and software company, project and user community that designs and manufactures single-board microcontrollers and microcontroller kits for building digital devices. Its hardware products are licensed under a CC-BY-SA license, while the software is licensed under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL) or the GNU General Public License (GPL), permitting the manufacture of Arduino boards and software distribution by anyone. Arduino boards are available commercially from the official website or through authorized distributors.
Use a variety of microprocessors and controllers. The boards are equipped with sets of digital and analogue input/output (I/O) pins that may be interfaced to various expansion boards (‘shields’) or breadboards (for prototyping) and other circuits. The boards feature serial communications interfaces, including Universal Serial Bus (USB) on some models, which are also used for loading programs. The microcontrollers can be programmed using the C and C++ programming languages, using a standard API which is also known as the “Arduino language”. In addition to using traditional compiler toolchains, the Arduino project provides an integrated development environment (IDE) and a command-line tool (Arduino-CLI) developed in Go.
The Arduino project began in 2005 as a tool for students at the Interaction Design Institute Ivrea in Ivrea, Italy, aiming to provide a low-cost and easy way for novices and professionals to create devices that interact with their environment using sensors and actuators. Common examples of such devices intended for beginner hobbyists include simple robots, thermostats and motion detectors.
Where did the name come from?
The name Arduino comes from a bar in Ivrea, Italy, where some of the founders of the project used to meet. The bar was named after Arduin of Ivrea, who was the margrave of the March of Ivrea and King of Italy from 1002 to 1014.
