Bleep Labs Intros Rad-Fi Synth Kits


Today, Bleep Labs opened up pre-ordering for a new breadboard audio electronics development system, which they’re calling Rad-Fi.

The Rad-Fi system is a collection of audio electronics kits that work independently or together, are “super mod-able,” and that teach the fundamentals of making analog and digital electronic devices.

The initial set of kits include the Rad-Fi Base; Glitch Delay; and the Patchable Synthesizer.

Bleep Labs explain the new offerings this way: “The idea is to make some kits that wouldn’t work well as finished PCBs and also teach people how to make their own analog and digital electronics on the way.”

Bleep Labs’ BleepDrum In LittleBits BitLab Vote

LittleBits Electronics recently debuted their bitLab where users, prototypers, and designers can submit their idea for what the company should manufacture next.

LittleBits eCommerce Manager Phil DeGisi explains, “If the module gets enough votes from our community, we review it, and in many cases will manufacture it. If we manufacture it, the module designer gets 10% of the revenue. We like to say that it’s the app store for hardware.”

One bitLab submission that may be of particular interest to Synthtopia readers is The Bleep Drum by Austin, Texas-based Bleep Labs.
