MaKeyMaKey was a very successful Kickstarter from some smart guys at MIT (http://makeymakey.com). It uses capacitive touch to stimulate USB HID devices using a Arduino Leonardo compatible programming environment.
We ran a workshop at VHS in Vancouver Canada in July 2014 building these using PCBs from Dirty PCBs. The design is open hardware, the Eagle files, bootloader and sketches can all be found on github (https://github.com/sparkfun/makeymakey).
I've contributed a layout photo, parts list and basic instructions at https://github.com/TomKeddie/vhs-pcbs/tree/master/makey-makey.
I've also added programming instructions at https://vancouver.hackspace.ca/wp/2014/07/27/makeymakey-bootloader-programming-over-icsp/
We recognize our top users by making them a Tindarian. Tindarians have access to secret & unreleased features.
We look for the most active & best members of the Tindie community, and invite them to join. There isn't a selection process or form to fill out. The only way to become a Tindarian is by being a nice & active member of the Tindie community!
