Colorful, magnetic, easy to use. LittleBits electronics within the reach of children, but not only, even for inexperienced adults. The basic building blocks of all the technology we use have become colorful and fun to use thanks to Aya Bdeir, an engineer at MIT in Boston, who a year ago founded a new company with the aim of making electronics exciting for children too. of components, from the power supply to the sensors, from the wiring to the controllers, which allow you to create almost anything. Assembly facilitated by colors and magnets that attract compatible modules. a sort of Lego for electronics, an Arduino for children. For many, the incomprehensible and unattractive technology in its construction, everyone is ready to take advantage of the advantages that d, but very few understand the logic and the complexity.

LittleBits facilitates the task, makes it fun to create technology and allows you to share this passion, thanks also to its online community where the various users upload videos and tutorials of their creations: from animated Christmas ornaments, to the remote-controlled toy car, to the dress that it lights up.The Open Source project, so anyone can download the schematics of the components and eventually modify or improve them. Starting from $ 29 you can order a kit or you can receive the individual modules that interest you, everything comes in a cheerful box green and purple that looks like chocolates. The noblest goal is to create a new generation of engineers, who can think differently, who sees the creation of new products as a fun and useful game for everyone. To favor this attitude there are competitions that reward the best achievements.
