Glad you posted about litteBits. I've been really excited to see the number of startups on kickstarter that are focused on bringing education/tech focused products to market for kids. Kinetic learning is such a great way to bring out unsolicited creativity. Not sure if you seen this company (http://www.atoms-express.com/), but they are on a similar track. Thanks for the post.
I think this is a great idea, especially with the rapid disposal and replacement behavior associated with technology. DVD players, mobile phones, iPods (if you can get into one), etc, are chalk full of components that could not only be repaired, but repurposed into new hardware. Great piece of inspiration and would love to see more of these pop-up across the country.
