Invention challenges are back! This winter, Make It Move.


By Eric Drumm, Head of Social Media at littleBits

 
USE YOUR BITS AND WITS TO INVENT SOMETHING AWESOME THAT MOVES!
Your invention can move to fulfill a purpose, or simply move for fun. Think about all ways movement makes our lives, and life, possible…from the earth rotating around the sun to waves in the ocean to the many ways we get around every day. We move to go places, we move to build things, we move for fun, for exercise, to communicate and express ourselves.
WE CHALLENGE YOU TO USE YOUR DC MOTORS, VIBRATION MOTORS, SERVO MOTORS, FAN BIT, POWER BIT, AND ANY OTHER BITS YOU’D LIKE TO INVENT SOMETHING AND MAKE IT MOVE.
You have until March 28 at 11:59pm ET to enter your submission through theInvent page or on the littleBits Invent app. You could win a Synth Kit or special littleBits swag!

 

CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.

You can use any kit or Bits to complete the challenge, but we recommend the new Droid Inventor Kit which allows you to control your Droid from your phone using the Droid Inventor app. You might also like to use the Gizmos and Gadgets Kit, 2nd Edition, which includes tons of Bits to help your invention move, including 2 DC motors, a servo, servo hub, wheels and a ball caster. Feel free to add to your Bits with craft materials or other tools.
