Educational open-source modular electronics
LittleBits is a collection of tiny modular circuit boards that snap together magnetically. Each bit has a unique function, for instance there are ‘bits’ for buttons, sounds, lights, sensors, and motors. They’re designed to make the process of learning electronics as user-friendly as possible, bypassing the soldering and programming and getting straight to the playing.
The motivation for the company is to change the mindset of people from passive electronics consumers to engaged creative thinkers. The design does this by breaking down the complexities of modern electronic devices into easy to understand modules.
