      I wonder how many of us never got our rewards?

      Received two of these and they never worked. My son and I were disappointed. Now they sit around and gather dust

      Hey everyone,

      Sorry for getting back to you so late!

      Many of you have questions about lost shipments etc. and for those types of things I don't want to post your information publicly. So it's best to reach us via with questions about shipments and faulty products.

      The comments section here is a great place to share ideas for projects and tell us what you think of the Makey Makey GO.

      Thank you all for backing the campaign and I hope you're inventing cool things out there!

      Hi guys, I think I filled the survey, but still didn't get the product. Please check.

      Hi, I have been waiting to plug in and start playing with my kids. I plugged 2 different units into 2 different laptops and all that happened is they light up.

      Can you please help?

      Regards, Ben

      Just Checking in...have these been shipped yet? I may have been late with the survey response. Thanks!

      I haven't received it yet, Could you please expedite.

    10. Jay Silver 2-time creator on

      Hey Laura,

      Ah, it looks like we didn't get your survey response until after the deadline - So we have to send your GO manually - which I've done now. So it should be on it's way tomorrow.

      All the best and thanks for backing the campaign!

      Hey Pascal,

      Oh sorry - yes I didn't answer that here because Lucas wrote to us over Email about that.

      The harp program in the video (found here - is just outputting a random note every time it's clicked. The GO isn't sending different signals based on the size of the capacitance.

      All the best,

      Pascal van Geest

      Hi Jay,
      Do you have an answer to Lucas' questions (see below) about how to make the harp with different tones, or the bananas with different sounds, with only one cable?
      On the promotional video it seems to be possible, but no idea how you did it.


    20. Jay Silver 2-time creator on

      Hey Eric,

      Nope, no grounding wire this time! Makey Makey GO is capacitive, like a touch screen. The object the GO is connected to has a capacity to hold electricity - when you touch it, the capacity expands to include your whole body - which is a big difference! This change is detected by the GO and a signal is sent to your computer.

      The "play button," the one in the middle, adjusts the sensitivity.
      The "Set" button, at closest to the USB port, switches between Spacebar and Click.

      I hope that makes sense!

    21. Eric Castro

      I have a question: I haven't gotten mine yet because I'm not home (so I hope it's sitting there on my mail box) but, in all videos I don't see anyone touching a grounded wire; I have an arduino shield that behaves like this but requires that ground is also applied to your body through another wire. Is this the case for makey makey go ? if not, how do you solve this issue ?

    22. Jay Silver 2-time creator on

      Oh I'm sorry to hear that.
      We might be able to help you find a solution - what is the project you wanted it for?


    23. RetromanIE on

      Such a pity and bad design choice to have it not save the keymap. Anyway, it's still fun, but useless for what I originally wanted it for.

    24. Jay Silver 2-time creator on

      Hey everyone,

      If you have shipping questions or concerns, please contact us at since I don't want to post your tracking numbers or addresses for all to see here in the comments section.

      I'm terribly sorry about all delays or lost shipments.

      @RetromanIE, yes, when you unplug the GO it reverts back to Spacebar.

      @Jonathan, the instructions aren't up online yet, but they should've been included in the box. Please message us here or email and I'd be happy to help!

      All the best,

      Any update on when these will be shipped to New Zealand? I haven't received a tracking number yet and would love to have them to start the school year.

    29. RetromanIE on

      Got my 3 today. Work great. One small issue that might be something I'm doing wrong. When I change the keymap to the "Escape" key it keeps reverting to the "Space" key when unplugged!
      Is this by design?

      Mine was shipped, and slated to arrive on December 26. The USPS tracking info remains unchanged. :(

      My Makey Makey GOs finally arrived today. A month late and after Christmas. Must say I am a very disappointed with the delivery of this project.

    36. Lucas F. Artacho on


      My Makey Makey GO arrived and I already tested some basic applications with one touch function. In the video case I saw the possibility of measuring different capacitances with diferent triggers in the same object, as the example of Plant Harp and with bananas.

      I wonder how can I do that if I get this result using the example of piano on the site ( or I need to do its own program for this.


    37. Jonathan Leung on

      I'm wondering if the instructions for the Go are online anywhere? Upon preliminary tinkering (a couple of minutes), I can't figure out what the middle and right most button do yet... Will continue to tinker haha

    38. Wanjun Zhang on

      @Ron, I had the same issue with my mac, I had to go to "Change keyboard type" under System Preferences -> Keyboard and change the type to the non-US one. (both Japanese and European worked for me). It functioned correctly after that.

    39. Rubyn Welbergen on

      Just arrived in The Neetherlands! Works fine!

      Hey Everyone,

      Hey everyone,

      Oh awesome! That sounds cool. Can't wait to see what other things people Makey (GO)!

      Yes, you should've gotten the tracking info via Email. DM me if you still need it.

      Oh, well, there's a sticker on the right side that you can cut for easier opening.

      All the best,

      I've been screwing with this thing all day. The fact that no ground lead is needed opens the possibilities to things like pranks, which I've already done! Hook it up to an object someone will pick up (in my case it was an empty soda can just sitting on the couch so someone might want to throw it out), plug it in and set it to play a very loud sound through the home theater system. Bam! The reaction was fantastic.
