Little Bird's Description of the Shake-a-Key Standard Kit

Description

The Shake-a-Key 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 Shake-a-Key. 

The Magic Science

When you plug the Shake-a-Key into your computer, your computer thinks it's just a regular keyboard and mouse, but when you hook objects up to the Shake-a-Key using the included alligator clips. 

When you close the electrical circuit, the Shake-a-Key sends a keyboard stroke or mouse signal to your computer.

Unlike other boards on the market that do similar things, the Shake-a-Key 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

Made in Australia

To ensure quality, we (Little Bird) make the Shake-a-Key in Sydney, Australia.

The Shake-a-Key Deluxe comes with everything you need to get started!

Pong with ShaKey

Have you ever played Pong? What about a game of Pong created by yourself!

In this guide, we will show you how to create a game of pong using the Scratch programming language. Then we'll use the ShaKey's inputs and shake feature to create a controller for the game.

Complete this guide to learn about basic programming concepts such as variables and loops. Take your coding skills to the next level.

Dance Dance Revolution with ShaKey

Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) was a big hit a few decades ago and can still be found in some arcades. Now, with the ShaKey, you can build your own DDR device! 

In this guide, we will show you how to build your own Dance Dance Revolution game by using the ShaKey and the Scratch programming language.
