Little Bird's Description of the ShakeUp Deluxe


The ShakeUp makes you a STE(A)M 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.

When you Shake the ShakeUp it sends a keystroke to your computer.

You can also connect everyday objects to the ShakeUp using the included alligator jumper cables.

When you close the electrical circuit, the ShakeUp 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 (and type it into a spreadsheet)

Just plug the ShakeUp into your computer (any computer that supports USB Keyboards and Mice) and you are good to go. 

No software is required to get started!

Going Further

The Shake-a-Key is Arduino Compatible and WebUSB Compatible.

Made in Australia

To ensure quality, we (Little Bird) make the ShakeUp in Sydney, Australia.

The ShaKey Deluxe comes with everything you need to get started!
