Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I'm following up on them as I can. It was pointed out to me that there may be a good deal of value to be had in getting these things in the hands of hackerspaces.

So, if any one wants to play with one, send me an email off-list with an address, and I'll send one out to each hackerspace as I can afford to. You'll need to solder it together yourself.

Each black box is interactive and contains components to make cool stuff. Mostly Makey Makey at the moment AFAIK, but Arduino might be useful as beginner makers get more advanced.
