7E loves littleBits :)
littleBits is a creation from MIT graduate Ayah Bdeir, an interactive artist and engineer. We hardly post companies here, but we find this to be an exception. littleBits is an award winning open source kit with electronic modules that snap together with magnets. Each brick is a self contained, pre-assembled circuit and has one function: it acts as either a light, a sound, a sensor, button, motor, etc. “No soldering, no wiring, no programming, just snap together for prototyping, learning and fun. Just as LEGO™ allows you to create complex structures with very little engineering knowledge, littleBits are small, simple, intuitive, blocks that make creating with sophisticated electronics a matter of snapping small magnets together.”
She says, “littleBits is a mission-driven company, we want to empower people — artists, designers, kids — to use light, sounds, sensors, and motors in their creative process.”
Thanks littleBits for joining our blog. We love it.
