Adafruit went to the littleBits store today! It’s opening to the public on July 31, 2015! Congrats, Ayah and the entire littleBits team, you’re the only open-source hardware company with a retail store (right?)!

littleBits Electronics, Inc., the startup that is democratizing hardware by empowering everyone to create inventions, large and small, with its platform of easy-to-use electronic building blocks, is thrilled to announce it is opening its first ever littleBits Store in New York City. The pop-up store, located at 355 West Broadway in the SoHo district, is opening to the public on July 31, 2015.

The littleBits Store is a lab for inventions, large and small, and like the company, is on a mission to empower everyone to unleash their creativity.

The store is targeted towards families, educators and creative professionals and promises to take visitors on a journey of invention through a series of interactive experiences including:

  • Get inspired: Warm-up with the musical twister wall, a new take on and homage to the iconic (and sadly gone) FAO Schwarz giant piano.
  • Create inventions: Take a seat at one of the workshop tables in the lab and create your own invention such as a Keytar (a synth guitar), a BitBot car, a self-powered drawing machine or anything from your imagination.
  • Create inventions: Take a seat at one of the workshop tables in the lab and create your own invention such as a Keytar (a synth guitar), a BitBot car, a self-powered drawing machine or anything from your imagination.
  • Share creations: Step into the Get Snapped Photo Booth to share your invention with the world, inspire others in the community, and see how everyone is an inventor.

The littleBits Store is pioneering a new concept in tech retail: Inventions To Stay and Inventions To Go. Visitors who participate in the workshop tables are able to leave their inventions for others to remix, encouraging open source collaboration, or buy what they invented on the spot, thus putting into action littleBits’ agenda of breaking down the boundaries between the technology we consume and the technology we invent. The littleBits Store will be open M-F, 11:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m., and Sat & Sun, 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
