We stop by Barnes and Noble every month in NYC to see what magazines are celebrating and if/when more maker products are being added. There was a MAKE event not too long ago and littleBits announced they’ll be stocked in Barnes and Noble and this month both now have a kiosk.
Photos above – the interesting this is that you need to go up to the cash register to purchase anything, and it’s unclear if they’re stocked at the local store, or if it’s an online order (we’ll check next trip). The “kiosk” is a cardboard box-like thing with a plastic top. It does not appear to have the contents of the kits, just the boxes, with a sticker “bring to cash register” – the stores do the same thing for 3D printers and pretty much anything that has higher value.
So if you’re looking for Pi, Arduino, littleBits the local Barnes and Noble may have it!
