FunKey Simple is an invention lab, a music lab, a science lab and a coding lab rolled into one easy-to-use, snap-together, plug-and-play, super-fun, very affordable package.  It provides a learning platform that works perfectly and simply right out of the box. FunKey Super is a more advanced version that can take sensors, and has many additional modes.  But for sheer ease of use, FunKey Simple is great.

FunKey Simple:

 

Make almost anything into a control:  fruit, foil, coins, pencil markings, your nose. 18 keys.  Play a symphony! Control the world!  Want to choose different keys? The drag-and-drop app lets you re-assign the 18 connections to any keystrokes you like.
