The Makey Makey Bit sends an "on" signal to the Bits that follow it when a keypad ("left arrow", "space/click", or "right arrow") is connected to either of the "earth" pads through a conductive material.

When you connect the Makey Makey Bit to your computer with the micro USB cable it can act like a keyboard or mouse, controlling "left arrow", "right arrow", and "space click". For example, when you touch the "space/click" pad and an "earth" pad, it is the same as pressing the space bar or left click on your mouse.
