Title: ShrimpKey
Post by: nikki on October 15, 2013, 11:20:54 AM
Found this tutorial for making a MaKeyMaKey style shield for a Shrimp style Arduino board:

The ShrimpKey is almost capable of the same things as a MakeyMakey.
There are three differences:

    the ShrimpKey has 9 connectors (MakeyMakey: 18)
    the ShrimpKey can only type letters (MakeyMakey: can move the mouse also)
    the ShrimpKey will cost you around $ 7 (MakeyMakey: $ 50)

OK, there is a fourth difference (and I find this the most fun and important one):

    the ShrimpKey is DIY (MakeyMakey: off-the-shelf)
