As varied as input devices are these days, there are usually still a few common objects that people think of when they hear that very phrase. Now, there is something that allows you to turn pretty much anything into an input device. The only condition that needs to be met is that said thing must be able to conduct electricity.

Meet the “Makey Makey GO.” Odd name aside, it is a simple device with a USB Type-A connector on one end. Plug it into a computer, and you can then clamp an alligator clip on the other end. You can then connect the other end of the clip to anything you want, and that item is now a substitute for a key on your keyboard or your touchpad.

The project has already achieved its goal on Kickstarter, but you can probably still get one for US$19 (approx RM68).
