    Hi, I am a high schooler and I have to do a project involving little bits. I loved your alarm clock that turned on when the sun rose, and I was wondering how you made the wood box. Did you have a service make it? or did you do it yourself?

      Hi there! Here’s what I found on the littleBits website: http://littlebits.cc/projects/morning-sunshine. In Step #5, they said, “We used a laser cutter and wood to make the window box, but you can use any accessible material (cardboard, Bristol board, etc.) to do the same thing. Set up the circuit inside each of the boxes individually. Add wires in between the two boxes depending on how far away you want to place your pillow from your alarm.” They also provide a template for making the box: https://lb-community.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/user/1750/abc0e05b-3d2c-4b19-b7fd-3fbb88f299b7.pdf.
