The biggest littleBits project EVER!

The MoMA Store window displays feature 4-foot-tall kinetic sculptures made of wood, cardboard and acrylic and are animated solely with littleBits. The Bits circuits measure less than 1 square inch. This installation required no programming, no wiring, and no soldering – just sensors, switches, lights, and motors snapping together with magnets.

These displays inspired us to get YOU involved in making something BIG.

THE CHALLENGE: WINNERS ANNOUNCED

Grand Prize

The Sock Game by Baila

Dream Flowers by Trish

These projects emerged from an incredibly creative household and tied for first place. The Sock Game was created to “make a really boring job a littleBit more fun.” The functionality of the piece and video narrative won the judges over. Trish, Baila’s mom, works as a preschool teacher and designed Dream Flowers to extend her students’ study of Wassily Kandinsky’s “Concentric Circles and Squares.” The beautiful, intricate flowers and video caught the eye of the judges, who love seeing littleBits used to enhance learning.

First Runner Up

Tap Tap Smile by Peter A. Jackson

Tap Tap Smile is an interactive window display inspired by “everyone’s love of tapping on fish tanks.” When the window is tapped, the fish’s frown turns upside down. The judges were impressed by the adorable display and participatory element of this piece.

Second Runner Up

PANDA-monium by Malachy

This began as a diorama for a class assignment and evolved into an electronic project inspired by The Puppet Master. The use of MoMA project techniques along with the educational lesson and artistic display impressed the judges. However, the real showstopper is the video that accompanied the final project.

There’s only one rule: you must use littleBits to create your display.

Exercise your imagination to transform the small circuits into large-scale works of art. Exhibit your work in a venue of your choice (your living room, classroom, or window will do!) and upload a breakdown of your process and finished product. Like the MoMA Store, we appreciate quality presentations. Check out the Judging tab for further details.

  • Documentation. Share your process with us! We love to see sketches and prototypes.
  • Final video. This is the record of your grand display, make sure its top-notch!
  • Share. Put your work out in the interwebz! Though not the deciding factor, we will take into account how much the Bitster community likes your projects.
