For kids with a future in cyber security, the 'Rule Your Room' kit from toy company 'littleBits' offers a fun and creative means of protection from the Big Brother in their lives: their big brothers. The simple, modular electronics kit allows inventive kids to create a slew of adorable security features for their stuff, from buzzing diary alarms to paper ball-catapulting door sensors.

Due to it's modular design, the Rule Your Room kit need not only be used to keep nosey siblings and parents at bay. The moving parts and lights are perfect for dynamic art projects, like a moving collage or light-up, motion sensitive eyeballs. The kit also comes with littleBits' top product, the 'Makey Makey Bit,' which is a device that can turn virtually anything into a touchscreen controller. With this neat sensor, kids can have endless fun turning objects from their room into Internet of Things-esque devices.
