Why, hello there! 2014 was the biggest, boldest, most EPIC year littleBits has ever seen.
We enabled the entire littleBits library to connect to the internet with the addition of our beloved cloudBit.
Approximately 1,253 GIFs were sent over company email.
We launched NINE new accessories, including the Brick Adapter which took Lego + littleBits to a whole different level!
We invited the world to become littleBits hardware developers with the bitLab: the app store for hardware.
We have an 8 hour long playlist of songs dedicated to sax solos.
Get the playlist here.
15 new bits were born!
2 bitizen babies were born!
Our cheeky Electronics Engineer, Rory and his wife Emily, welcomed Killian Thomas Nugent. We think he’s off to a great start. 😉
Stephen, the sweetest Logistics & Order Management Specialist, and his wife, Samantha, welcomed Lorelei Scout Young.
We initiated “Beer and Tell Fridays” where bitizens share a project they’re working on or have worked on outside of littleBits. With beer in hand, obvi.
The White House
We wore so much flannel.
We partnered with Radio Shack and are now in 2,000 stores nationwide.
We blew through THREE different offices!
On Halloween, we found an Ayah Bdeir v 2.0.
We welcomed 34 new bitizens to the family.
We took up [aggressive] scootering.
We were banned from [aggressive] scootering.
We put a man on the moon park with the Space Kit.
We found a way to make your old stuff smart with the Smart Home Kit.
We were conservative with our office decorations.
Things…. happened at our holiday party.
We were ready to proclaim to the world that the Maker Movement is here to stay and did the biggest campaign we’ve ever done! TV, subway and print.
We were completely amazed and warmed by our growing community. All of you lovely bitsters make our days at HQ. We’re always watching your videos and being inspired by your projects. Thank you for believing in littleBits and supporting our mission!
…aaaaaand we’re kinda pooped.
This year we’re shutting down the office from December 23rd through January 4th to watch Netflix, go to Greece, eat snickerdoodles, sleep under palm trees, work on side projects, cuddle with puppies, hit the slopes, look at shiny things, and regroup for the even bigger year 2015 will be.
If you need us during this time, our customer service team will be able to support you at [email protected]. We’d never really, REALLY leave you alone. 😉
