I've just ordered one of these:

MaKey MaKey: An Invention Kit for Everyone by Jay Silver — Kickstarter

I'm quite excited, since it is possibly the best every nerd-toy.

However, I am experiencing a slight delay in creativity. I don't know what to make with it. Any ideas?

the interesting thing is that no-one knows entirely what can be done with this thing yet. It's so versatile that the weak link in the full usage of the device is not a technical challenge but a creative one.

I'm thinking just the gimmicky name will sell it. Invention? As big as imagination gets....

In all seriousness ... probably to keep the dust from settling on some of the other cutsie gimmicks (still in their boxes) in my hall closet

it's legit, low-tech, and magnificently clever.

I'm not a sucker. Just you wait till I make my cucumber trombone

OK this has become serious. They're running a competition for the best 10 ideas. the 10 winners get their makey makey immediately instead of having to wait until august.

I need your ideas immediately so i can take credit for them and get something for myself.
