Make an ESC Key for Your New Macbook With a Potato

Since Apple announced today that their new Macbook Pro will come without an ESCAPE key, we thought we should show you that it's no big deal as long as you have a potato and a Makey Makey.

Step 1.

Materials

Get together
• Makey Makey GO (or Classic)
• Alligator Clip
• Potato
• Laptop

Step 2.

Remap

Go to makeymakey.com/remap and select your Makey Makey (GO or Classic).
Follow the steps on screen and map the ESC key to your Makey Makey.

Step 3.

Connect

Connect your potato to your Makey Makey.
With a GO, press set to calibrate to the potato.
With a Classic, you'll need to connect yourself to the EARTH clip.

Step 4.

Escape

Now you never have to worry about getting stuck in full screen again.
