This is something we did at LearnOBots (where I work) for fun.
I used the output signal of Makey Makey to generate a signal whenever anyone completes the circuit by holding the metallic door handle and placing the hand on the aluminum foil cut out in the shape of a hand to light up the LED strip.
Pretty simple, right?

Aw thanks.
Actually it is easier on a desk to keep Makey Makey connected to a PC, for a door I know how difficult it is to keep it connected to a computer.

Cool! I often see Makey Makey projects on the desk - it's nice to see how you've incorporated it somewhere else in the space.
