1. Bigshot DIY Camera
Big Shot

We believe electronics are beautiful and we are thrilled that Bigshot has introduced a camera that not only exposes the electronic components, but asks that the owner assemble the components themselves. Learning by building is what we’re all about and it’s great to see other companies joining us to deliver that message.

2. Maker Camp

Maker Camp

Our friends at MAKE have been busy organizing Maker Camp over the last few weeks and it has been an honor for us to participate alongside makers like OK GO, Brit, Mitch Altman and Super Awesome Sylvia. Tune in today at 1 pm PST/4 pm EST to see our founder and CEO, Ayah Bdeir explain how littleBits can help you use electronics to bring your imagination to life.

3. David Rinman’s Beat Match

This interactive game takes play to another level. Ping-pong players can score points and make music with this table. Watch the video to witness the incredible audio/visual experience.

4. #6SecondScience

#6SecondScience

General Electric just launched the first-ever science fair on Vine. Behold the #6SecondScience videos. It is impressive to see how many scientific science concepts can be explained within 6 seconds. To participate in the fair, make your own Vine and share it on Twitter with the #6SecondScience hashtag.

5. Protos Eyewear

Protos has developed a software that can select and design a pair of eyewear to perfectly fit and accentuate your facial structure. All you have to do is send a front and side view photo of your face and answer a survey. From there, the team will print your frames using waste-free hypoallergenic byoplastics. For now the company is crowdfunding, check out their website to see how you can contribute and score a pair of your own.
