Create your own Mars Rover with these intuitive electronic building blocks.

littleBits first caught our attention with their cloud module, which makes it easy to add internet-connectivity to your electronics, but more recently, they decided to create a new “Space Kit,” as part of an exciting partnership with NASA. It costs $189, and the company hope it will educate more about space travel in a unique and interesting way.

Each one of the kits comes with 12 magnetic modules, which includes a numbers module, remote trigger and infrared LED sensor. The kit also comes with a booklet of circuit applications written by scientists at NASA, which teaches people how to build their own wave generator, star chart, and even, model Mars Rover.
