You probably remember the original Makey Makey as the device that made computing hilarious because it lets you use anything conductive as a button. The new Makey Makey Go now brings that same hilarity to a smaller format.

Designed by PhDs from MIT, the device is small enough to fit on a keychain and very easy to use. It plugs in to any USB slot. Simply push in the single-input Makey Makey Go and connect your banana to it using alligator clips. By default, touching the banana will be treated as a mouse click. You can also opt to custom define the input using a free Web interface.

The Makey Makey Go can be pre-ordered via Kickstater for $19, and should ship this November.
