Ayah Bdeir’s littleBits.cc

littleBits is a growing library of pre-assembled circuit boards that snap together with tiny magnets!

Just as Legos allow you to create complex structures with very little engineering knowledge, littleBits are simple, intuitive, space-sensitive blocks that make prototyping with sophisticated electronics a matter of snapping small magnets together.

With a growing number of available modules, littleBits aims to move electronics from late stages of the design process to its earliest ones, and from the hands of experts, to those of artists, makers, students and designers.

Very cool company encouraging the masses to build like an expert.

Coming lack of focus? I think the move into schools is phenom idea tho.


LittleBits has big plans for it, too, suggests Ayah Bdeir, the company founder and CEO, who says the capital will be used to support a number of new growth areas for the company.

For one thing, LittleBits plans to make a bigger push into companies like Salesforce, SAP and Twilio that have begun using its small, open source components for their internal creativity workshops and to prototype new products.
