littleBits are electronic building blocks with over 60 modules and trillions of combinations. With littleBits, anyone can harness the power of electronics, microcontrollers, and the cloud--regardless of age, gender, technical ability, or educational background. You can combine these simple, snap-together, magnetic bricks to make simple electronic circuits, or build robots and devices that combine sensors, microcontrollers, and cloud connectivity. This book, co-authored by littleBits founder Ayah Bdeir, along with top-selling author Matt Richardson (Getting Started with Raspberry Pi), teaches you just enough electronics to start making things with littleBits and takes you on up through connecting littleBits to the cloud and programming with its Arduino-compatible module.

"Dale Dougherty, creator of MAKE- Magazine and the Maker Faire, takes readers on a guided international tour of the spectacular phenomenon known as the Maker Movement, a social revolution that is changing what gets made, how things are made, where things are made, and who gets to make them. Unlike other books about contemporary making, which have detailed the implications for business and industry, Free to Make explores how making impacts our personal and social development--our ability to learn, to thrive, and to work with purpose and dignity. Dougherty explains how we are moving away from one-size-fits-all, passive consumption and command-and-control models of education and business, and instead embracing our freedom to participate. With full-color illustrations that capture the inventors and craftspeople of all ages, this book invites readers to see themselves as creators, builders, and shapers of the world around them."

Making Simple Robots is based on one idea: Anybody can build a robot! That includes kids, school teachers, parents, and non-engineers. If you can knit, sew, or fold a flat piece of paper into a box, you can build a no-tech robotic part. If you can use a hot glue gun, you can learn to solder basic electronics into a low-tech robot that reacts to its environment. And if you can figure out how to use the apps on your smart phone, you can learn enough programming to communicate with a simple robot. Written in language that non-engineers can understand, Making Simple Robots helps beginners move beyond basic craft skills and materials to the latest products and tools being used by artists and inventors. Find out how to animate folded paper origami, design a versatile robot wheel-leg for 3D printing, or program a rag doll to blink its cyborg eye. Each project includes step-by-step directions as well as clear diagrams and photographs. And every chapter offers suggestions for modifying and expanding the projects, so that you can return to the projects again and again as your skill set grows.
