littleBits is an easy way to invent things using electronics. Is your cat bored? Your vacuum cleaner is sad? With the use of your imagination you can create brand new devices to make your home smarter and your daily life more efficient…and fun! The workshop will be entry level but anyone can participate regardless of their knowledge. Imagination is the limit!

If you have mundane objects around your house that can be upcycled (an old wallet, floppy discs, plastic bottles…), we encourage you to bring them to the workshop, though it’s not mandatory.

littleBits are small, modular electronic pieces that connect together, snapping them through a magnet. They allow you to create complex circuits easily in no time.

The workshop will be run by Jordi Borràs. Borràs is a Barcelona-born and New York-based designer with more than 15 years of experience developing many different products. After an existential crisis as a designer, he joined the littleBits team, with the drive and excitement to create a tool that brings electronics to everybody instead of a finished product. During his previous career as a designer, Jordi was awarded several prizes and honorable mentions.

littleBits Live Performance by Renaud Bédard

Renaud Bédard’s performance is the best way to understand how the littleBits process works. In this show, he will use one of the most popular set of modules, the Synth Kit. It is the perfect device to learn how a synth works, and to prove this, Renaud will create a musical piece from scratch.

Renaud Bédard is a videogame programmer who works at the Toronto-based studio, Capybara Games. He is a lover of music and known for being one of the two developers of FEZ.
