This Week In Community: The Crated, Accelebits, bitLab Grads & Holiday Hacks

It's beginning to look a lot like BITMAS!

December 19, 2014

Check out what happened this week in the bitosphere:

The Crated

We sat down with the awesome Madison & Mari of The Crated, a fashion & technology lab that submitted the Tilt Bit to the bitLab! The Tilt Bit only has 15 days to get 409 VOTES!! Go vote NOW!

 

Congratulations to AcceleBits

Yuichiro Kuzu’s acceleBits module got the 1000 votes it needed to advance in the bitLab!!!! We’re excited review it and see how we can make it right at home in our library.

 

bitLab Graduates Class of December 2014

Congrats to BackyardBrains, Gabotronics & Bleep Labs on making it through the review stage of the bitLab! The Muscle Spiker, Oscilloscope & Bleep Drum are now in production and soon will be used in littleBits projects across the world!

Hershey Kiss Recreation

We recreated the classic Hershey’s Kisses holiday commercial using the synth kit and soon to be released MaKey MaKey module! See how we did it on the project page.

 

#HackYourHoliday

We’ve extended the deadline for the #HackYourHoliday challenge!!! Share your holiday hacks on our projects page by Jan 1 for a chance to win a Smart Home Kit! For inspiration, here’s bit’ster extraordinaire Judith Brisson’s Ringing Mistletoe:

 

#HackYourHoliday MakeAThon

It was so great to see all of you at last Saturday’s MakeAThon at the RadioShack in Times Square. Thanks to Lady Ada from Adafruit Industries for stopping by and writing about it on their blog 🙂
