|Cardboard kitties do cool stuff with Little Bits|
Check out the wonderful TED talk by Little Bits creator, MIT Media Lab alum, Canadian of Lebanese Arab background, Ayah Bdeir, (she got a B.A. from the American University of Beirut before she got her M.A. at the MIT Media Lab). This is a quintessential example of the global brain trust. Plus, she doesn't quite look like the stereotypical engineer...
I'm excited to challenge the teens tomorrow with some building schematics. then, when they figure out how the system works, they can get right down to creating some cool projects!
Just to put icing on the cake, she has registered Little Bits in the Creative Commons, so it is actually considered Open Source. Now that's cool. Shazam.
