You can whip out some wicked beats with these little guys that will wow your musical comrades. If you are an advanced coder, the Bitty is for you too!

According to Bitty’s post on Kickstarter, this little device comes out of the box ready to be played and composed on.

The connection with CodeChangers and Bitty all started when Jason Schallenberger and Garett Garcia, the executives of CodeChangers, met the founder of Bitty, Nick Chelyapov, at the Maker’s Fair in New York. As if it were destiny, these three became fast friends. Fast forward to today, CodeChangers is now incorporating these small drum machines and synthesizers into their teaching curriculum to help students get down with technology and music. These two companies will help students learn the relationship between coding, software and hardware, and how these elements can be combined to make an amazing product—in this case, music.

But we can’t do this alone! Come pledge to help and/or learn about Bitty today. These amazing products deserve all of our support. With them, we will be able to help more kids learn about new technology, programming, and, best of all, how to make beautiful music!
