Makey Makey Demonstration on Ketnet

Ketnet was looking for somebody to showcase the Makey Makey board on the Boeva & the games show. They reached out to me while I was on holiday during the summer, and of course I told them “yes!“. The recordings were the day after I returned home from a 2 week holiday in California, so I was a little…

Phaser and Arduino game for Ketnet

I wanted to share some of the work I’ve been doing with javascript…

iPhone public transportation lookup
