LittleBits is an exciting new educational toy that aims to break the boundary between electronics consumed and things we make with a system of electronic modules that snap together with tiny magnets for prototyping and play. Founded by MIT graduate and TED fellow Ayah Bdeir, no soldering, wiring, or programming needed, just snap and play. Each bit has a simple, unique function (light, sound, sensors, buttons, thresholds, pulse, motors, etc.). This product allow your young builder 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. With the 10-piece Starter Kit, you can build simple electronics quickly and affordably. Your young builder can use littleBits to make a wide variety of objects such as race cars, dragons, interactive greeting cards, and much more. This is an innovative, affordable educational tool that can be used in schools and homes and by all ages. The Museum of Modern Art has acquired littleBits for its permanent collection.
