There are a couple of things that I really like about it.
1. There is no soldering or breadboards involved. The pieces snap together magnetically.
2. The LightUp app helps kids learn about the flow of electricity and helps them trouble shoot their circuits.
- You take a photo of your circuit
- And the app will show how the electricity flows through your circuit.
I love that this product is focused on having people "learn by making", and I would really love to see these show up in schools as a great hands-on way to learn electronics.
If you want a kit, or want to support the project on Kickstarter, you have until June 30th when the project ends. They are almost halfway to their funding goal of $50,000. I am a backer and look forward to getting my kit and to seeing how this product develops.
