littleBits Space Kit

This is the littleBits Space Kit, a unique electronics kit for beginners and experts alike that contains everything you need to make your own space investigative projects. With the littleBits Space Kit little to no engineering knowledge is required to build your customizable projects. Included in this Space Kit are 12 different littleBits modules that can be attached together to create your space project, two 9V alkaline batteries and cables, a small screwdriver to modify a micro adjuster, and a full-color instruction booklet with 10 fun projects to create. With this kit you will be able to easily make a multitude of projects including: making a small wave generator, measuring the atmosphere, or making a basic satellite dish! 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.
