Connect everyday objects to computer programs as either a keystroke or mouse click signal. Arduino compatible, and with an accelerometer, gyroscope and temperature sensor, the Shakeup works with any computer program or webpage that accepts keyboard or mouse click inputs. The ShakeUp is made in Sydney, Australia.
The ShakeUp makes you a STEAM inventor by helping you to connect everyday objects to your computer. If you can plug in a Keyboard and Mouse, you can use the ShakeUp.
The Magic Science 👩🔬
When you plug the ShakeUp into your computer, your computer thinks it's just a regular keyboard and mouse, but when you hook objects up to the ShakeUp using the included alligator clips.
When you close the electrical circuit, theShakeUp sends a keyboard stroke or mouse signal to your computer.
Unlike other boards on the market that do similar things, the ShakeUp also includes a temperature sensor, accelerometer and gyroscope.
With the addition of these sensors:
- you can detect tilting (forward, backward, left and right)
- detect knocks and bumps (great for physics experiments)
- collect temperature data
Australian Made 🦘
The ShakeUp is made in Sydney, Australia and utilises our patent pending Lightric™️ technology for custom graphic on the printed circuit board.
Accessibly Priced for Education 👩🏫
Even though the ShakeUp is made in Australia, we are accessibly priced and costs less than half the price of competing products that are made in China.
Arduino Compatible 👩💻
