OUR MISSION

TinyCircuits designs and manufactures tiny, open-source electronics to serve innovation in the maker community, build fun STEM learning, and spark joy. All our products are made to the highest quality in our Akron, Ohio factory.
We make cool sh*t.

OUR STORY

True to our name, we started as a very tiny business, developing very tiny sensors that were cheap, smart, and easy to use. This led to the creation of our TinyDuino in 2012, a quarter-sized, stackable processor board with modular functions. Since then, we have produced over 100 separate electronic products, launched 4 successful Kickstarter campaigns, and shipped fun electronic products to ten of thousands of customers worldwide.

TinyCircuits consists of a small team of 14 passionate engineers, creatives, and makers striving to make the coolest and tiniest products in the market. We've been in business for 10+ years, designing and manufacturing our products in Akron, Ohio, USA.

Thumby started as Ben Rose's passion project over 5 years ago. When he demoed it at Maker Faire, people's eyes lit up, and he knew there was something special to it.  These past few months, Ben, Jason, Mason, and Laveréna have all been working hard at iterating on hardware prototypes and building out Thumby's mini games. We're excited to surprise our fans and see how they'll customize their keychains!
