Special Interview with Eric Rosenbaum

Today I had the opportunity to meet the co-creator of a product called, Makey Makey, an invention kit that turns everyday objects into touchpads.  Some of the Hello Little World Skypers and I had the opportunity to speak with one of the creators, Eric Rosenbaum.  He's a PhD student at MIT along with his co-creator, Jay Silver.  They created Makey Makey, Drawdio and Singing Fingers.  They are also on the Scratch programming team.

Eric loves incorporating music, art, and play with Makey Makey.  It's a fun and creative product!

This is a video they created:
