If you’re not already familiar with littleBits, they’re a technology company that makes kits designed to teach kids about the way electronics work. Their latest kit, the littleBits Star Wars Droid Inventor Kit, lets kids (or kids at heart) build their own version of R2-D2 using the littleBits pieces that assemble as easily as LEGO bricks. The kit includes 6 Bits, 20 Droid parts, 3 sticker sheets, instructions and a companion app for your phone with video instructions, 16+ missions and activities and controls for the Droid. It wouldn’t be R2-D2 without the bleeps and boops, so the robot comes with a module loaded with 20 authentic Droid sounds. While the kit might be designed and built to help kids get creative while building their own R2-D2, we’d be lying if we said we didn’t want to build one of our own.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
