buy little bits



On August 31st, 2019, after becoming the very first AEW World Champion, Chris Jericho approached a celebration area set up and upon seeing a bottle of Champagne would exclaim; "Ooh, a little bit of the bubbly!" - This moment immediately went viral, and to this day remains one of the most historic moments in AEW history. We knew what we had to do!


LittleBits takes a more barebones approach. Its kits include batteries, boards, blocks, circuits and other gadgets that children can assemble into different configurations and program. Last August, littleBits acquired DIY, which offers a library of do-it-yourself maker projects and instructional videos, as well as an online community where kids can share their creations.


Both parties have raised plenty of venture capital. Sphero has received just north of $120 million since its start in 2010; littleBits, founded a year later, has raised more than $70 million ($14 million of which came this past February). The two companies met through a common investor, Foundry Group, which helped spark the initial conversations between the CEOs that ultimately led to this deal, according to Barberian.


Sphero says this deal now makes it the largest player in the educational robot market, claiming that, together with littleBits the companies have sold more than $500 million combined in robots and kits. But the space is hardly uncontested. Among its competitors are KinderLab Robotics, based outside Boston, and Wonder Workshop, a San Mateo, Calif.-based company that also offers sphere-shaped bots and is backed by more than $78 million in venture capital.


Make a touchpad out of anything by attaching alligator clips (4 are included) to the Makey Makey Bit. For example, you and a banana. When you touch the banana, you complete the connection, and the Makey Makey Bit sends a signal to either your computer (move cursor left of right) or to your littleBits Bits (flash an LED, or turn a motor etc).


Show your small-breed dog how much you care with a meal made especially for him. Our Small Breed Mini Bits Savory Beef & Chicken Flavors dog food packs big taste into small-sized bits that are easy to chew. And this delicious meal has high-quality protein and wholesome nutrition you can feel good about giving every day.


The littleBits Gizmos and Gadgets Kit is the ultimate invention toolkit that contains everything you need to design and create large, powerful projects just by snapping a few magnets together. Included in the Gizmos and Gadgets Kit are 15 littleBits modules that can be attached together by the power of magnets, a 9V alkaline battery and cable, a full-color instruction booklet with 12 fun projects to create, and all the accessories and tools to make them. With this kit you will be able to easily make a multitude of projects including: a remote controlled racecar, an automatic bubble blower, or even a wireless doorbell! All of this comes in a large cardboard box that is perfect for storage and transportation purposes.


littleBits is a library of discrete electronic components pre-assembled in tiny circuit boards. These simple, intuitive, space-sensitive blocks 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.


Each "Bit" is a piece of an electronic circuit. The bits are color coded and divided into 4 categories: power (blue), input (pink), output (green), and wire (orange). By combining the modules in different ways (by simply "snapping" them together magnetically) you can quickly create any number of interactive electronic projects.


I'm an electrical engineer with boys in gradeschool (K and 3rd), and bought this kit for Christmas for all of us to play with. I was instantly hooked, not because I thought it was cool...but because how fast my kids picked it up. Their horizon of "things I can now do" expanded more than I could possibly of imagined. After 3 days of constant play I leveled up and bought two cloudbits and more power options. We now have multiple fixed littlebit installations revolving around the house. The latest was a chore-done-o-meter. Yes it's $200, but the value is twice that given the possibilities it provides grade school kids. My one gripe, is that the not-lego type of latching interconnect between the bits themselves and a base board more or less sucks...toss it. But the rest of the system is inspiring design, and worthy a review on their Githup repo.


If you get in touch with littleBits about their board, they'll put you on a list to get new ones sent out. There have been some manufacturing issues that caused some boards to basically just pop the bits off of them.


If SparkFun is going to sell LittleBits, they should really consider selling Snap Circuits too. We own both in our house, but we stopped buying LittleBits after 1 set (the synth set) and have continued to buy at least 6 more Snap Circuit sets. I think both the monetary value and the educational value are much greater with Snap Circuits. My 6 year old feels like he's doing experiments with the Snap Circuits, whereas he approaches the LittleBits as just a toy. Accordingly, the Snap Circuits get much, much more attention in our house. The LittleBits are definitely a little "hipper" looking product, and I appreciate that their electronic circuits are open-source, but the magnetic connection concept, one of the few proprietary aspects, leaves something to be desired, as we're continually having to re-seat the components, especially with any amount of movement of the creation. Considering all of this and the fact that LittleBits components cost roughly 10x what Snap Circuit components do, Snap Circuits seem to fit better with the SparkFun ethos.


Sphero recently sent us their littleBits STEAM+ Kit to review which is a great system all set up for you with lesson plans (aligned to NGSS, CCSS and CSTA standards), invention ideas, and the supplies needed!


In this review I feature the littleBits STEAM+ Kit which is great for up to 4 kids at a time (ages 8+), however, there is also a littleBits STEAM+ Classroom Pack for larger groups like classrooms and school clubs (see specs below) which is great for up to 40 students at a time!


The STEAM+ kit is compatible with the littleBitsFuse app for smartphones and the littleBits Fuse app website. Essentially the app real is just a library for new invention ideas that you can building using your bits.


The littleBits STEAM+ kit comes with 40+ standard aligned lessons for use in the classroom and the inventions you can create are limitless. The manual (and app) have great invention ideas with instructions on how to build them, but the real magic comes when kids are engaged and bring their own ideas to life!


Ari Gold: Okay, yes, if could *gouge out* Terrance McQuewick's eyeballs and eat them for what he did to me, I would! And I would sell that Benedict Arnold Adam Davies into white slavery if we lived in a place that had a market for it. And Lloyd! That little queen who I welcomed into my home and allowed to play with my children and care for my dog and who left me for those two scumbags, I would tie him up and allow the entire Screen Actors Guild to anally rape him if not for the fact that I'd know he would enjoy it. I hate 'em all, and yes, I want to see them destroyed. But *that* is not why I want this company. I want, no, I *need* this company because it's good business. It's good goddamn business, and if I don't buy it, someone else will and that will be very very bad for my business. And my wife, of all people, should know, that when it comes to business, my judgment is never clouded, so please...


LittleBits has many kits to choose from, but I wanted something that would allow me to lead a whole room filled with kids in a program. I wrote my grant to purchase the Workshop Set, which allows 8-24 kids to build at the same time. This kit was $2,000, but I was able to purchase it on Black Friday when they had a sale. Also, as an educator (or librarian), you receive a 5% discount. if you plan to write a grant to purchase your own littleBits, the good news is that littleBits has already done lots of research for you that you can refer to in your grant application. On their website, littleBits has already posted how littleBits connect to Common Core standards, so you have lots of research to prove the value of this resource. 041b061a72
