LightUp Tesla Kit (Bluetooth Edition)
- Snap together magnetic blocks to build circuits in seconds (no soldering or wiring needed), then program them wirelessly over Bluetooth
- Join the growing LightUp community to access guided tutorials, view projects made by other kids, and share your own creations
- Build a burglar alarm, battery tester, musical instrument, and more
- Learn key STEM concepts about circuits, programming, and engineering with the Tesla Kit (compatible with the Edison Kit)
- Dream up and build infinite projects by combining electronics with the power of code
LightUp combines the best of both worlds by bringingtogether an engaging hands-on electronics platform with an interactive iOSmobile app. With the included Bluetooth-enabled microcontroller block, theLightUp Tesla Kit is perfect for kids ready to build awesome projects thatcombine electronics with code. The Tesla Kit contains everything needed to getstarted, but is also a great upgrade for those who already have the Edison Kitsince all LightUp blocks are compatible with each other. With the power ofcode, the number of projects possible is only limited by a kid's imagination.LightUp was founded by Josh, a teacher, and Tarun, an electrical engineer, whomet at Stanford University while running educational workshops. They couldn'tfind a product that excited kids while teaching them the skills and conceptsthey'd need as the scientists, engineers, and innovators of the future.LightUp teaches kids how to explore their world with electronics and code.Kids can build exciting projects by snapping together magnetic circuit blocks,and then use the LightUp Learning app (for iPad) to interactively learnimportant concepts. The app includes introductory projects to get started,with new project ideas added every week. LightUp Lens, the in-app augmentedreality feature, helps kids out when things don't work, and even gives themX-ray vision by letting them see electricity flow! The LightUp Tesla Kitempowers kids to build the projects only they can dream up. The LightUpLearning app teaches them how to code the included microcontroller block,which can be wirelessly programmed over Bluetooth 4.0! With the Tesla Kit,kids can build a burglar alarm, musical instrument, and much more. LightUpblocks included: Rechargeable Battery, Bluetooth Microcontroller, Speaker,Light Sensor, Momentary Switch, 5k Resistor, Wire blocks (7), Micro USB CableFrom the Manufacturer Simple. Safe. Educational. We've built LightUp from theground up to be different from everything else out there. The blocks arecolorful, friendly and durable, and the box has custom-fit slots so packing itup is a breeze. Build circuits in seconds by snapping blocks togethermagnetically, no soldering, wiring or breadboards needed! Made for EveryoneThousands of kids around the world have already built over 100,000 projectswith LightUp. What will you make? Build quickly Snap together LightUp'smagnetic blocks to build circuits on a table, whiteboard, or even a fridge. Nosoldering or wiring needed! Learn interactively Download the free LightUpLearning iOS app for project ideas, personalized guidance, and the augmentedreality Smart Lens. Program your world Wirelessly program the microcontrollerblock with easy drag-and-drop code blocks to create cool projects like aburglar alarm, musical instrument, and anything else you can imagine. Award-Winning Awards from Dr. Toy, Maker Faire, Stanford, Popular Mechanics, TIME,and more! About the Startup Describe your product in 3 words. Learn by MakingHow did you come up with the idea for this product? Though we come fromdifferent backgrounds (Josh a high school teacher and Tarun a softwareengineer), we realized soon after meeting at Stanford that we shared a passionfor using technology to enable learning in the most engaging and inclusiveway. From our time in the classroom we were amazed at how outdated andunintuitive existing products were, so we set out to create our first productline to teach STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) in agroundbreaking way. What makes your product special? We've seen entireclassrooms gasp in amazement after using the LightUp app to see electricityflowing right in front of them. We've seen a 6-year-old build a circuit andprogram it to play a song (both for the very first time) to his mom'samazement in a matter of minutes. In our minds, it's stories like these thatshow what makes our products special. Of course, behind the scenes it's takentremendous work to make this magic possible. With a lean team and in a shortamount of time, we've brought to market a connected toy that combines some ofthe latest advances in wireless technology, computer vision, and augmentedreality. And we're just getting started! What has been the best part of yourstartup experience? Bringing an ambitious concept from just an idea in ourheads to a fully-formed product in kids' hands around the world has beenincredible (and much too rich of a story to try to tell here).
