Minecraft is related to creation, but littleBits wants to help players overcome new borders and reach the real world.
DIY Electronics has developed one Minecraft mod like you've never seen before. Using special Wi-Fi-enabled building blocks in combination with the Redstone dust "wiring" game and the littleBits Minecraft Mod, players have the ability to build real-world things that interact with the game and vice versa.
Here you can take a comprehensive look at the basics from YouTuber TheDiamondMinecart:

The kits sold by littleBits are not specifically designed for it Minicraft. The company focuses on "activating" aspiring inventors of all ages and genres such as its Gizmos & Gadgets Kit contain a variety of modules that can be joined using magnets. In addition, they have a color code, giving users an easy way to differentiate the different types of components and how they fit together.
The "bitCraft" mod gives elements that can make hand-made handhelds in the game that communicate wirelessly with littleBits modules in the real world, provided the player has cloudBit modules (which can also communicate with other Wi-Fi-enabled devices such as smartphones). The wide variety of modules available means that there is great flexibility in what you can create.
A user, for example, has built a tool in the game, which builds a Iron Golem every time a real version of Lego Minicraft creature is placed on a special littleBits pad. Other examples include a music synthesizer created by Minecarts, a trap designed to punish intruders and - everyone's favorite - a chicken cannon.
The issue at stake is price. The kits from littleBits are not cheap. The most popular (according to the company website) is the Gizmos & Gadgets Kit available at $ 199.95, although you will need a cloudBit ($ 99) to take advantage of the bitCraft mod.
