Jay Silver, a research assistant and Ph.D. candidate in Media Arts and Sciences in the MIT Media Lab’s Lifelong Kindergarten Group, demonstrates a new technology called Makey Makey that turns the whole world into a computer mouse. He says of its genesis: There I am, at an UnSchooling Camp, running a workshop, and a teen makes a musical looper out of an ordinary hula-hoop. Who would think of a hula-hoop as a music controller? This is the mindset of Makers. And watch out, because the Maker Movement is coming, and it’s dangerous to existing paradigms of education and industrial production! What tools will the Makers use?
