‘Make It BIG’ Challenge Winners! May 22, 2013

Last month, in conjunction with our MoMA Design Store Window Displays, we launched the Make It BIG Challenge . We presented the challenge to our community and invited them to exercise their imagination to transform littleBits into large-scale works of art. The only rule was that every submission had to contain Bits. Our panel of judges graded each piece on their use of Bits, creativity, documentation process, video and community reaction.

Our MoMA Design Store installations were created entirely out of littleBits’ electronic modules and basic art materials. On April 13th, 14th, 20th and 21st from 11AM to 3PM at both MoMA Design Stores, the littleBits team will be on location and ready to answer any questions you have regarding the display and product. They’ll also demonstrate how to create a Bit masterpiece of your own.

Are you interested in showing off your skills to your […]

These stunning displays are complex designs and though it may seem impossible to recreate them home, it’s not.

In The Press: core77 April 8, 2013

“But for sure the most impressive projects I’ve seen have been the ones for the MoMA windows. They push the boundaries of littleBits in every way: their scale, how long they will be on display, and the simplicity of the designs as well as the complexity of the mechanisms. For instance, the shark is three feet long, has dozens of articulations and an intentionally awkward movement across its spine… and is powered entirely by a single littleBits Servo Motor.” -Ayah Bdeir, CEO
