Maker Studio | Littlebits

Description:

Littlebits are a plug and play learning electronic assembly tool that
allows a builder to quickly create a circuit without having to solder or worry about
directions of electrical flow.

Specifications

  • Materials: Materials aren't required, but objects such as wheels, or other electronics can be used in your project.
  • Software: N/A
  • File types: N/A
  • Machine details: N/A
  • Production time: dependent on the project scale

Procedures:

  1. Consider the goal of your circuit (Flashing LED, a sound goes off, etc) and write it as a planning sentence
  2. Work backwards from your output by connecting littlebits, towards the power source.
  3. example:
    • If you used “AND” in your sentence: you require a “Fork” bit
    • If you used “OR” in your sentence: you require a “Latch” bit
    • If you used “WHEN” or “AFTER” in your sentence: you require an input bit
      • Example Sentence:
        • A light is turned on WHEN it is dark
          • A light = LED
          • WHEN it is dark = Light Detecting Input
