Ethan Hartman of littleBits describes their modular electronics creation system

In this episode of PSDtv Ethan Hartman of LittleBits describes their open-source library of electronic modules that snap together with tiny magnets that one can use for prototyping, learning, and just having fun. littleBits are tiny circuit boards with specific functions engineered to snap together with magnets. No soldering, no wiring, and no programming needed. Each module has a function like light, sound, sensing, motion, etc, and modules snap to make larger circuits. littleBits
