About the product
  • Snap together magnetic blocks to build circuits in seconds (no soldering), then program them wirelessly (iPad with Bluetooth 4.0 required)
  • 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

Product Description

LightUp combines the best of both worlds by bringing together an engaging hands-on electronics platform with an interactive iOS mobile app. With the included Bluetooth-enabled microcontroller block, the LightUp Tesla Kit is perfect for kids ready to build awesome projects that combine electronics with code. The Tesla Kit contains everything needed to get started, but is also a great upgrade for those who already have the Edison Kit since all LightUp blocks are compatible with each other. With the power of code, 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, who met at Stanford University while running educational workshops. They couldn't find a product that excited kids while teaching them the skills and concepts they'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 learn important concepts. The app includes introductory projects to get started, with new project ideas added every week. LightUp Lens, the in-app augmented reality feature, helps kids out when things don't work, and even gives them X-ray vision by letting them see electricity flow! The LightUp Tesla Kit empowers kids to build the projects only they can dream up. The LightUp Learning 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. LightUp blocks included: Rechargeable Battery, Bluetooth Microcontroller, Speaker, Light Sensor, Momentary Switch, 5k Resistor, Wire blocks (7), Micro USB Cable

About the Startup

Describe your product in 3 words.

Learn by Making

How did you come up with the idea for this product?

Though we come from different backgrounds (Josh a high school teacher and Tarun a software engineer), we realized soon after meeting at Stanford that we shared a passion for using technology to enable learning in the most engaging and inclusive way. From our time in the classroom we were amazed at how outdated and unintuitive existing products were, so we set out to create our first product line to teach STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) in a groundbreaking way.

What makes your product special?

We've seen entire classrooms gasp in amazement after using the LightUp app to see electricity flowing right in front of them. We've seen a 6-year-old build a circuit and program it to play a song (both for the very first time) to his mom's amazement in a matter of minutes. In our minds, it's stories like these that show what makes our products special. Of course, behind the scenes it's taken tremendous work to make this magic possible. With a lean team and in a short amount of time, we've brought to market a connected toy that combines some of the latest advances in wireless technology, computer vision, and augmented reality. And we're just getting started!

What has been the best part of your startup experience?

Bringing an ambitious concept from just an idea in our heads to a fully-formed product in kids' hands around the world has been incredible (and much too rich of a story to try to tell here).
