I love all of the beginner electronics kits, components, and building systems that cottage industrialists are developing. Here’s an early prototype page for a component system being devised by Media Lab grad and Eyebeam-er Ayah Bdeir and NY interaction designer Jeff Hoefs. The project is sponsored by SmartDesign. I love the use of magnets to make the power and mechanical connections and to ensure polarity. Looking forward to seeing further developments of this tech. We’ll keep you posted.
