What if you could build a piano out of bananas? Or invent a new musical instrument made from plants, pants, pop-tarts, papayas, or people? The MaKey MaKey invention kit lets you create physical-digital musical instruments like these and more, without requiring skills in electronics or programming. I'll also introduce an iPad app called MelodyMorph that lets you create playable musical instruments, compositions, and stories on a touchscreen. I'll talk about my experiences developing and testing these tools, and share some thoughts on how I design for learning through tinkering.
