little Bits

Ayah Bdeir

littleBits is a growing library of preassembled circuit boards, made easy by tiny magnets. All logic and circuitry is pre-engineered, so you can play with electronics without knowing electronics. Tiny mag­nets act as connectors and enforce polarity, so you can’t put things in the wrong way. littleBits has a vision: to end the mysticism around engineering and electronics, to counter the black box product ideology of consumer electronics, and to fuel an explosion of creativity and innovation in artists, de­signer, kids and hobbyists when it comes to technology. Crave creativity? Make something! light it, push it, turn it, twist it, bend it, buzz it, blink it, shake it!
