New in the Maker Shed: littleBits Starter Kit

Two days after littleBits big announcements we have the littleBits Starter Kit available in the Maker Shed! These unique, space sensitive modules provide a simple, intuitive avenue into electronics. Each bit has a function (light, sound, sensors, buttons, thresholds, pulse, motors, etc), and modules snap together to make larger circuits. The kit includes 10 color coded modules (power, input, output, and wire) that snap together magnetically. The addictive fun of the littleBits Kit is guaranteed to keep kids (or you) occupied for hours. Comes beautifully packaged in an attractive case with a magnetic (of course) closure. Includes instruction sheet and a 9v battery.


I am the Evangelist for the Maker Shed. It seems that there is no limit to my making interests. I'm a tinkerer at heart and have a passion for solving problems and figuring out how things work. When not working for Make I can be found falling off my unicycle, running in adverse weather conditions, skiing down the nearest hill, restoring vintage motorcycles, or working on my car.
