As a CS major in college, circuits felt so intimidating (hardware! resistors! voltages?!) I feel like I need this even now! ;) Would've loved to have this as a kid!
This is super cool! The cs person in me thinks hardware is so freaking awesome (as I usually live in software) and I love how this makes hardware accessible for people who are young and new to everything. Rock on guys!!!
My Friends @joshchan & @tarunpondicherr made this while I was working out of StartX! I actually helped out at a Tech Learning Day for kids and I saw all the kids actually LEARNING and interested about circuitry and engineering. I was getting teary eyed because I was so happy. I remember growing up in rural Idaho where I didn't have these resources or these tech learning days and I had to create my own. I'm lucky I had parents who were engineers but that's not the case with most families. I really see these kits being as or more successful than Kano Kits. I know this may be cheesy to say, but I think LightUp will inspire a generation of engineers and we'll finally make that Iron Man suit! I hope you support them, I did! They're awesome people with an awesome vision. p.s. Check out their video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=QokSrL7691I
The bluetooth wireless module makes coding possible on my iPad! I wished I could learn programming and circuits this way back in elementary school!
Thanks for the love guys! We're stoked that kids have made 100,000 circuits with LightUp so far and excited for the possibilities when combined with drag-and-drop coding.
