Sponsor Spotlight: Little Bits

7 Apr

littleBits is a system of electronic modules that snap together with magnets. We built littleBits to break the boundaries between the products we consume and the things we make, and to make everyone into an inventor.

Each littleBit has one unique function (light, sound, sensors, buttons), and with different combinations you can make large circuits. littleBits allows you to create interactive projects without any background in engineering, programming or wiring, in a few seconds. It’s as easy as snapping LEGO bricks together. And the best part is, it’s open source!  Check out this awesome video that explains more or check out their website:
