The latter news is super cool — they’re selling a $159 Synth Kit that allows you top snap together electronic instruments using specialized littleBits elements that are available only as part of this kit.
littleBits hs introduced a couple of cool projects that can be created with the kit. The first is the keytar pictured in the video above. The other one is a DJ-style “Synth Spin” that looks super fun to spin.
Check out Matt Richardson’s interview with littleBits’ Ayah Bdeir about the Synth Kit at Engadget Expand this past weekend.
