Makey Makey is a very clever piece of assistive technology, which enables children with disabilities to turn everyday objects into one click mice they can use for themselves. Whether it’s a banana or an orange, a glass of water or even a strumming a guitar, the children are able to join in playing with all sorts of games. If they can’t use a complex controller, they are still able to control a computer game – it opens up a whole world of possibilities to these children in the most imaginative way.

Music is such an important form of expression and it is particularly important for children in children’s hospices who may not be able to speak or move or tell people how they feel.
Our special mice make it possible for children with disabilities to have the rare opportunity to control something for themselves.
