In July, littleBits introduced their new cloudBit module, which allows users to snap the internet to anything and create their own internet-connected devices/projects. The littleBits system of magnetically interlocking pieces that just snap together is already one of our favorites here at Make: magazine. You can see them at Maker Faires, usually with a small crowd gathering around, experimenting with different configurations of the tiny circuits. Now, with the cloudBit, you can add an internet connection to any of your projects. LittleBits shared some really fun examples of the kinds of things you can pull off, like a remote pet feeder or a doorbell that notifies your smartphone when someone is at your door.
To celebrate, they’re giving away over $5,000 in littleBits including the cloudBit! One lucky winner will receive a Pro Library, the largest collection of littleBits ever made (worth over $4,000). Second place will receive the Workshop Set + two cloudBits. Third place will receive the Cloud Starter Bundle + Space Kit + Deluxe Kit.
