littleBits cloudBit Starter Kit: Snap the Internet to Anything

This kit is the easiest and fastest way to turn any dumb thing into an internet-connected smart device, giving you the power to make what smart objects are important to you. The kit contains 6 of our favorite prototyping modules, including the cloudBit, which is everything you need to get started. Make a remote pet feeder! Use text messages to turn lights on and off! Perfect for hackers, designers, makers and tinkerers of all levels–without the programming, soldering and wiring normally required. Works out of the bag and also works seamlessly with all other littleBits products.

Create Solutions to Day-to-Day Challenges

There are problems you have that no big company will solve for you. Just because it’s unique to you doesn’t mean it’s not worth solving. Use littleBits to retrofit your life and make it better for you. If you never hear the doorbell, then hack it so it sends you a text instead. Does your roommate always forget to buy toilet paper? Hack it so that when you’re on your last roll, an order automatically gets placed. Well show you how–no programming, soldering or wiring required.

What’s in the kit?

6 modules that give you everything you need to make powerful internet connected devices: cloudBit, USB Power, Long LED, Servo, Sound Trigger, Button. Accessories included: wall power adapter (connects USB power to outlet), 2 mounting boards, 1.5m usb cable (connect USB power to computer). Comes in littleBits canvas bag.

Beyond the cloudBit

Besides the cloudBit, this kit comes with some of our favorite modules: Long LED, Servo, Sound Trigger, and Button. The Button is exactly what it sounds like: press it and make something happen a few feet or few thousand miles away using the cloudBit. The Sound Trigger is an input that allows you to trigger an action via the cloudBit when it senses a sound. The servo is an output that turns and could, for example, move to turn an appliance on or off. Finally the long LED lights up and can be a great notifier, via the cloudBit, when something happens far away.

Turn any “dumb” product into a smart device

littleBits cloudBit allows you to turn the products you already have into smart, internet-connected devices. For example: Have an old air conditioner and want to turn it on remotely? Use the cloudBit and the servo to hit the power button on it while you’re on the drive home, so that your home is cool when you get back.
