littleBits is an open source library of discrete electronic components pre-assembled in tiny circuit boards. littleBits makes prototyping with sophisticated electronics a matter of snapping small magnets together. All logic and circuitry is pre-engineered, so users can play with electronics without knowing electronics. littleBits aims to move electronics from the latter to the earlier part of design process, and from the hands of experts to those of makers and designers. In April 2009, littleBits was exhibited at MakerFaire Bay Area and received wide acclaim from the audience, in addition to winning an Editor’s Pick Blue Ribbon Award in 2009 and 2011. In 2011, littleBits was acquired by the Museum of Modern Art for the permanent collection.
