This is part of an on-going series of posts about littleBits. We encourage you to use the Tips & Tricks to enhance your Bit projects. littlebits is available in the Adafruit store – Starter Kit, Extended Kit and Teaser kit.
The light wire Bit is almost four feet long and it’s made of special material called “electroluminescent wire,” which is great to form into glowing shapes. It’s best to use this Bit in the dark. We like to use it to make wearable accessories when we go to parties! There are endless ways to incorporate the vibrant lightwire Bit into your projects! Unsure of where to begin? Read more here.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
