The most important part in the Rule Your Room Kit is a bit which connects all conductive staff you have around you with your littleBits kits.
w14 MAKEY MAKEY BIT
MEET THE BIT
The Makey Makey Bit turns everyday conductive objects (like bananas) into triggers that control your circuit and even your computer. You can connect the Makey Makey Bit to these objects using alligator clips.
HOW IT WORKS
The Makey Makey Bit sends an ON signal to the Bits that follow it when a keypad (LEFT ARROW, SPACE/CLICK, or RIGHT ARROW) is connected to either of the EARTH pads through a conductive material. When you touch both alligator clips at the same time, electricity flows from the LEFT ARROW keypad to the EARTH pad, triggering an ON signal to the buzzer.
This works because humans are conductive. Yes, even you!
