Ayah Bdier the Founder and CEO of Little Bits joins Craig to discuss Electronics dubbed “LEGOs for the iPad generation”. littleBits (spelled lower case L, upper case B, all one word) consists of tiny circuit-boards with specific functions engineered to snap together with magnets. No soldering, no wiring, no programming, just snap together for prototyping, learning and fun. Each bit has a specific function (light, sound, sensors, buttons, thresholds, pulse, motors, etc), and modules snap to make larger circuits. Just as LEGO™ allows you to create complex structures with very little engineering knowledge, littleBits are small, simple, intuitive, blocks that make creating with sophisticated electronics a matter of snapping small magnets together. Crave creativity? Make something! Light it, push it, turn it, twist it, bend it, buzz it, blink it, shake it… Immediately following this interview Craig will be joined by Chris Herbert the Co-Founder of Phone Halo who will discuss technology that will
help people manage the location of their belongings. From keys to
wallets, to bikes and more, Phone Halo provides an effortless and
elegant solution to the time consuming task of finding misplaced and lost items. Phone Halo works with companies like Verizon Wireless and Audiovox to incorporate their technology into new products and innovating simple, helpful products for users worldwide.
