LittleBitty Monsters go to TED2013

Posted by: Karen Eng

At TED2012, Senior Fellow Ayah Bdeir’s included a littleBits mini kit in the TED gift bag. It was a smash hit at the conference and beyond. This year, Ayah wanted to take it one step further and start a conversation! These limited edition kit puppets – a dragon and a bear – are littleBits’ first project kit.

Here’s an instructional video to help you put your puppet together – an onsite collaboration between Ayah Bdeir, TED2013 Fellow Safwat Saleem, and Fellows support staff Jennifer Wolfe and Karen Eng. BEEP!

Get instructions to make your own here, and you can design your own animal too!

    Amazing, Great way Ayah Bdeir to show kids how electronics works! DIY is for kids as it is for adults; recently we had a workshop with kids about littleBits and how kids makes their own projects.
    Thats was in Tarfaya; Morocco.
