BBC News - MIT students' invention turns bananas into keyboard:

Teenager inspects kit that is connected to bananas
The inventors think technology can be used as a tool to fuel creativity.

Two students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have managed to develop a banana piano.
Jay Silver and Eric Rosenbaum, both 32, were looking for a way of turning everyday objects into touchpads.
They have developed a kit called MakeyMakey, that can turn fruit, animals and even humans into keyboards.
Mr Rosenbaum told the BBC the idea behind the kit was to enable people to "see the world around them as a construction kit."
The basic kit contains a USB cable and a bespoke circuit board with alligator clips attached to it. The circuit board is programmed to replace a standard computer keyboard.
