Running game with Scratch and makey makey

Using makey makey and programming in Scratch we can make a running game that players actually run on a specially designed board.
The game was programmed by students of the Experimental Elementary School of Florina during the 2015-2016 season. At first the game was played using the keyboard where two players control the two digital athletes.

Later on we decided to use MakeyMakey to control the two athletes by actually running on a special controller made by cardboard and metal foil. There are four metal foil pedals and each one is connected to four keys in MakeyMakey. The two players where special bracelets which are connected to the ground on Makey Makey.
