When you were a kid, being an inventor was right up there with astronaut and firefighter. The latter two may not have played out, but littleBits is helping adults and kids alike get in on their inventor dreams with this smart home kit. Basically, it's a collection of electronic building blocks that help connect the internet to pretty much anything you can think of.
The kit includes 14 modules that range from the brand's amazing internet connecting cloudBit to its latest temperature sensor. With just a tiny bit of programming or wiring know-how (if you don't have any, don't worry - there's tons of info out there), you can make gadgets that help you do things like monitor your garage door, remotely feed your pet, control wall outlets, or get a text alert when your laundry is done. That's the power of invention.
