First-ever littleBits store combines retailing with a laboratory, and experiments with open source creative collaboration in a retail space

If you are feeling left out from all the people building cool tech projects and don't know anything between Arduino to ZigBee, make a plan to visit the littleBits popup store in New York City. The hardware startup company opened their first physical location in SoHo and the space encourages anyone to try their hand at building an electronics project.

littleBits is an electronic building blocks system of easy to assemble circuit boards and components that snap together magnetically. There's no soldering, wiring, or programming required. The aim of the company is to democratize hardware and empower everyone to create inventions young or old regardless of technical skill.
