The littleBits Base Kit contains everything you need to get started with designing and creating your own interactive creations. Included in this Basic Kit are 10 littleBits modules that can be attached together by the power of magnets, a 9V alkaline battery and cable, a motorMate to attach wheels or other objects to the DC Motor Bit, and a full-color instruction booklet with eight fun projects to create. With this kit you will be able to easily make a multitude of projects including: a simple alarm clock or even turn a DC motor! It even comes in a snazzy cardboard box with magnetic closure.

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.
