Ayah Bdeir is out to make creating Internet Age gadgets as fun and easy as playing with LEGO blocks. The engineer behind littleBits kits that make a game of piecing together modular circuitry used a Technology, Entertainment, Design (TED) conference to debut a piece to the puzzle that lets creations talk to the Internet.LittleBits blocks are magnetized so that modules can only be stuck together in ways that will work.The addition of a "cloud" module to link module creations to the Internet opens the door to using littleBits to create such gadgets as wireless speakers, smart thermostats and security systems.
