“…The installation required no programming, no wiring, and no soldering – just sensors, switches, lights, and motors snapping together with magnets. The projects aim to present electronics as just another material, accessible to everyone including kids, artists, makers, and designers – not only engineers and experts…” —littleBits press release

“We partnered with Brooklyn-based design studio Labour and challenged them to restrict themselves to only using littleBits for electronics, and no other hardware platform, or robotics tools for the entire display. Something as remarkable as a giant shark swimming after a tiny lure, or a cyclist turning a large Ferris wheel 10 times her size are at once iconic and familiar but absolutely distinctive in how we have merged two worlds, the world of art, and that of electronics…”
—Founder and CEO of littleBits, Ayah Bdeir
