Introducing Makey Makey GO


We are stoked to announce our new product. Makey Makey GO. For us a product launch wouldn't feel right if it wasn't done on Kickstarter. Please rock over to the Makey Makey GO Kickstarter project for the full info. 

Much love, JoyLabz

On Monday we GO!


Thanks to your generosity in 2012, we started our quest to show the world that everyone can be an inventor - anytime, anywhere. Because of your love and support we have put Makey Makey into the hands of nearly 200,000 inventors and delighted millions of others.

Now we are continuing the adventure with our new Kickstarter campaign - launching on Monday, May 11th at 11am EST (in 72 hours).

We thank all you Makers, Dreamers, Tinkerers, and Inventors for your support and hope that you will continue the journey with us! 

Eating, Shipping, and Contesting

Star Spangled Banner for Dinner

Christian Genco won a talent show with this performance and became the first Pro Maker ever sponsored by JoyLabz. The 5 minute performance is hilarious. His next MaKey MaKey performance will be at the Ingenuity event at the Perot Museum in Dallas on January 18th, where MiKey MiKey from JoyLabz will also be speaking about MaKey MaKey.
