NEW: Love to Code Programmable Board!

Get your own Love to Code Board!

Interested in coding, but don’t know where to start? Or perhaps looking to add that personal, interactive touch to a craft project?

Our Chibitronics Love to Code system is designed to enable beginners of all backgrounds and ages to try out programming without the frustration of installing software. If you’ve browsed the web on your laptop, smartphone or tablet, and used headphones to listen to music, you know everything you need to get started!

The Chibi Chip is the heart of the LTC system. You can use it to program interesting behaviors and patterns into your lights or add interactivity to your projects with sensors! Don’t worry if you don’t know how to program—the Love to Code board is ideal for beginners!

It’s easy to get started!
