Makey Makey Inventors Kit
I finally got my Makey Makey inventors kit and just for fun I wired up / programmed a tomato and some grapes from my parents farm.
I wrote a ruby script that uses the curses gem to capture commands from Makey Makey and use a case statement to tell me which fruit / vegetable I touched.
Here is the script.
require 'curses' Curses.noecho # do not show typed keys Curses.init_screen Curses.stdscr.keypad(true) # enable arrow keys (required for pageup / down) loop do case Curses.getch when Curses::Key::DOWN puts "grapes" when Curses::Key::UP puts "tomato" end end
Melissa was amazed and said "we should plug it into the cat". We are married 7 years to the day and it's got everything to do with suggestions like that. :)
