   Hey gang,

   As Remco pointed out, we're excited about getting the Pro library at the
Lab. I think it's going to open up a lot of doors with younger audiences,
because the littleBits let you put together some pretty complex circuits
without all of the soldering/breadboard layout issues that usually slow
workshops down.

   The littlebits site is awesome: http://littlebits.cc/
   And they have a great community forum full of clever projects:

   You're welcome to mess with them Wednesday, but we're specifically
looking for some help putting together some demo projects that we can run
through with kids.
   This month's LittleBits "theme challenge" is MUSIC, so we're hoping
you'll help us build noise-making contraptions of every variety. (How cool
would it be to have a "band" of ad-hoc synths by the end of the night?)
   Things to optionally bring with you:
   - Small instruments
   - iPods, microphones, pickups and other sound sources
   - Audio cables and jacks

   I'll be documenting - hopefully, if you get something exciting
happening, we can record your setup for posterity. :) See you Wednesday!

   PS: Supernerds, check out the CloudBit - http://littlebits.cc/cloudstart
   It pushes and pulls wifi data to and from the internet / or mobile app.
I think this one's going to be huge once we figure it out. :)
