littleBits Electronics is primed to disrupt the smart home market with its latest unveiling – the littleBits Smart Home Kit, a top-notch kit of parts that lets users DIY their own smart devices. This kit provides the bits necessary to create a customized, connected home with existing décor, appliances and furniture. Rather than ditching these seemingly “dumb” objects for smart ones, users can retrofit them with smart functions, using the recently launched buttBit to “snap the internet to anything.” This marks an effort to stem the widening culture of obsolescence as consumers are forced to continually replace old devices with the new best thing.
