littleBits Electronics Deluxe Kit
littleBits makes electronic modules that snap together with tiny magnets for prototyping, learning and fun! The modules consist of tiny circuit boards with specific functions (light, sound, sensors, buttons etc.) which connect together to create larger circuits. littleBits are small, simple, intuitive blocks that make working with electronics a matter of snapping small magnets together with no experience required. The littleBits Electronics Deluxe Kit comes with 18 powerful modules making it the biggest littleBits kit there is.
18 Powerful Modules
The Deluxe Kit has everything you need to build the interactive creations you've been dreaming of with the 18 included modules. The DC motor rotates a shaft when you send it an ON signal. It even has a switch allowing you to set the direction of rotation. It also includes the motorMate which lets you easily attach wheels, cardboard and lots of other materials to the motor. By attaching various items to the DC motor you can make windmills, cars, helicopters and more! Another impressive module is the sound trigger which listens to the noise level and sends an ON signal when it gets over a certain level. You can use it for a variety of things such as connecting it to a light wire to light up your room when you snap your fingers!
littleBits' Deluxe Kit comes with an instruction manual that will talk you through creating 15 innovative projects. One such project will enable you to light up your shoes when you walk by running the light wire module through your shoes, attached to the power and sound trigger. The stomp of your feet will be picked up by the sound trigger, sending electricity to the light wire causing it to light up. If that doesn't take your fancy, then you could build a big wheel, powered by the DC motor and controlled by the dimmer module. With hundreds more projects online, the only constraint of what you can create with littleBits is your imagination.
littleBits electronic modules connect to each other using magnets, making them mistake-proof and easily interchangeable. Modules are colour coded depending on their function, for example pink represents inputs and green, outputs. Thanks to this colour coding system, no prior knowledge of electronics or circuitry is required, making the kit open to people of all ages. Every littleBits module and kit can work with each other, enabling you to grow your collection.
Who's it suitable for?
The littleBits Electronics Deluxe Kit is perfect for anyone, whether you're a professional designer or just getting started with electronics. The Deluxe Kit gives you the flexibility you need to make big, powerful projects without the need for engineering.
