The designers behind littleBits built their product with the hope of giving everyone the necessary tools to become an inventor. To help everyone realize their invention dreams, littleBits offers a huge library of modules (tiny circuit boards, each with specific functions) that snap together using magnetics—no wiring or soldering required. littleBits are to electronics what Legos are to architecture: a simple, no fuss way to get your creativity—and inner inventor—flowing.
