We’re thrilled to announce our first ever littleBits Store in New York City. Part lab, part shop, our store will be like nothing you’ve ever experienced before.
It’s a lab for inventions, large and small, and is on a mission to empower EVERYONE to unleash their creativity. It’ll be chock full of interactive installations, decked out demo stations and more!
Located at 355 West Broadway in the SoHo district, the pop-up store is opening on July 31, 2015. But! The party actually starts at our Grand Opening Celebration. Sign up here for a chance to score an exclusive invite.
We’ll have lots and lots of exciting inventions ready for play, like The Musical Twister Wall. It’s a new take on and homage to the iconic (and sadly gone) FAO Schwarz giant piano.
Take a seat at one of the workshop tables in the lab and create your own invention such as a Keytar (a synth guitar), a BitBot remote control car, a self-powered drawing machine or anything from your imagination!
Step into the “Get Snapped Photo Booth” to share your invention with the world.
We’re pioneering a new concept in tech retail: Inventions to Stay, or Inventions to go. Visitors who participate in the workshop tables are able to leave their inventions for others to remix, encouraging open source collaboration, or buy what they invented on the spot, thus putting into action littleBits’ agenda of breaking down the boundaries between the technology we consume and the technology we invent.
“We are very excited to announce the littleBits retail store,” said Ayah Bdeir, our CEO and founder. “We want littleBits to be in every home, every school, every creative space. But for us the littleBits Store is about getting closer to our customers individually, fostering a local community of inventors and imagining a world where products and experiences.
Come Invent With Us.
The littleBits Store will run through holiday 2015 and will feature a continuous stream of talks, classes and hands-on activities for all ages, from the beginner starting their journey as an inventor, to STEM/STEAM educators, to the experienced prototyper or inventor.
We’re SO excited to meet you. So excited, that all 92 of us headbanged in anticipation.
