MakingSociety Podcast Special bitLab Week !

Andrew from littleBits contacted me a few weeks ago to tell me about the bitLab, a new program to support littleBits contributors that he has been putting up together.

I really liked the idea and after a few discussions I offered to do a special bitLab week here on MakingSociety to describe the program in details and share ideas and tips for makers who want to give it a try. littleBits agreed and is now officially the first sponsor ever of MakingSociety! Exciting times.


Here we go!

This bitLab Week starts today with a new MakingSociety Podcast episode featuring Andrew Avrin, the person behind everything bitLab at littleBits.


This episode is a 30 minutes full interview about littleBits and its new bitLab program where makers can now develop modules that could become integral part of littleBits module catalog. Contributors get revenue sharing as well as full credit and hand-in-hand collaboration.

The bitLab is truly an exciting idea! It’s a great experiment in open hardware and community integration.
