littleBits founder Ayah Bdeir is featured on the latest episode of Popular Mechanics‘ Meet The Makers series.
With littleBits, Bdeir is turning electronics into a resource—like cardboard, plywood, or fabric—that any designer can use.
Her color-coded bricks snap together with magnets. Each performs a specific function, allowing users to quickly construct circuits that include sensors, switches, and motors.
Last year, Bdeir introduced the littleBits Korg Synth Kit – a reimagination of the modular synthesizer as a snap-together building set.
