Make it Move Challenge Winners


By Eric Drumm, Head of Social Media at littleBits

YOU MADE SPINNING DANCERS AND DOO-DADS. YOU HELPED BIRDS AND BLIMPS TAKE FLIGHT. YOU ENGINEERED RACECARS, TRACTORS, DOZERS AND SNOW PLOWS. YOU EXPLORED THE OCEAN DEPTHS AND VAST MEADOWS TO BRING ANIMALS TO LIFE. YOU DESIGNED DELIGHTFUL DIORAMAS. YOU INVENTED KITCHEN CONTRAPTIONS THAT STIR, DISPENSE, AND SERVE. YOU THOUGHT UP SMART ROBOTS AND MOBILE TOOLS OF THE FUTURE. YOU PROVED THAT YOU’RE MOTION MASTERMINDS.

 

 
An enormous THANK YOU to everyone who shared their dancing, rolling, jumping, spinning inventions with the whole littleBits community. You had us leaping with joy for your kinetic creations!
With 116 submissions in 2 months, this was a great way to kick off a new year of inventing with littleBits! Thank you to our rockstar team of littleBits judges — Monty Kim (Product Designer), Ryan Mather (Designer), and Katia Teran (Product Manager) — for taking on the difficult task of helping us choose the Challenge winner and runners-up.
The following inventors really moved us with their creative use of Bits and materials, documentation of their invention, and innovative problem solving.
