LittleBits, the folks behind a DIY kit for building smartphone-compatible accessories, has launched a dedicated product aimed at children. The Rule Your Room Kit can be purchased now for $99.95, and it looks downright awesome.
The idea behind the kit is simple: children are given a bunch of magnetic modules, and each one can be connected together in order to create an invention. Step-by-step instructions for eight inventions are included with the kit and delivered through a companion iOS app, but more, of course, can be created – provided you throw in a little imagination!
Bits are reusable, meaning children can deconstruct their inventions in order to create new ones; you can also incorporate inventions into toys you already own, like LEGO creations or even board games. For children with a natural interest in science, technology, and engineering, the Rule Your Room Kit would make a perfect gift.
- Build science, engineering, art and math skills as you problem-solve and invent.
- Get step-by-step instructions for 8 inventions, 1 challenge, and inspiration for tons more!
- Gain the confidence and curiosity to reinvent the world around you.
- Minimize screen time with a toolbox you can use again and again to create new toys, pranks & more.
Components (“bits”) include sound triggers and motors. The companion app can also show users the inventions made by other users. It all looks like a lot of fun.
To order a Rule Your Room Kit, call by LittleBits' website. As mentioned, one can be yours for $99.95.
