At littleBits, we are on a mission to democratize hardware by empowering everyone to create inventions, large and small, with our platform of easy-to-use electronic building blocks.
We spend more than 11 hours with electronic devices every single day, but most of us don’t know how they work, or how to make our own.
How can we solve the challenges we face today if we don’t understand the world we live in? We believe that to solve 21st century challenges—economic, environmental, medical—we don’t need more, we need smarter. Tomorrow’s sense of pride will come from inventing the future.
littleBits is leading a hardware renaissance where everyone, regardless of age, gender, technical ability, or discipline, can be creative with electronics and reinvent their world.
With over 60 interchangeable Bits and trillions of billions of combinations, we are moving electronics from late stages of the design process to its earliest ones, and from the hands of experts, to the hands of everyone.
Whether you’re a young maker starting your creative journey, a professional engineer wanting to cut down prototyping time, a designer or entrepreneur with the next billion dollar idea, or an educator who wants to inspire the next generation of problem-solvers, we believe you should be able to use electronics as a building block.
littleBits is born out of the Maker Movement and we have been helping lead the Open Hardware Movement. That’s why littleBits is open source and building a community of contributors who experiment, share online, and learn from each other’s creativity. Our designs are publicly available so that anyone can see, use and adapt them to their needs.
