Make Mashed Potatoes
Tbh they don't need to be instant. They don't need to be mashed potatoes. Any kid of food will do. We just decided on instant mashed potatoes cus we wanted something cheap and quick.
Make the Circuit
Power + Makey Makey + Servo. Put the servo in a mount and add the hub + mechanical arm. Then, put the shoes on the bit feet.
Attach to Bowl
Stick you Bits to your Mashed Potatoes bowl. Separate the Makey Makey & the servo so they're on either side of the bowl. Maybe try hiding the Bits with some table cloth.
OR PLACE IT WITHIN A FANCY TABLESCAPE (shoutout to Ina Garten)
Attach Alligator Clips
The Makey Makey allows you to turn any conductive material (food, metal, human skin) into a touch sensor. By connecting one wire to the potatoes and the other to the spoon, you can complete the circuit with every serving.
Wait for someone to say "pass the mashed potatoes" and respond "gladly" and let it rip! Hopefully this will be the catalyst to an epic food fight to distract you from talking to your family about politics.
