Gizmag: littleBits adds Arduino module May 30, 2014

Gizmag wrote a nice piece about the launch of the littleBits Arduino bundle this month. “Littlebits gives young hackers a functioning Arduino programming environment, but without having to fuss with any soldering, wiring or breadboarding. Among the basic projects that come with the kit is a digital Etch-a-sketch tutorial that takes inputs from other LittleBits modules and translates them into images on your connected computer. Other nifty projects include analog Pong and some fun sound tweaks including an 8-bit jukebox.”
