The micro:bit is coming to Adafruit sign up now! @adafruit @microbit_edu #microbit
Coming soon to Adafruit – The micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that you can code, customize and control to bring your digital ideas, games and apps to life. Each element is completely programmable via easy-to-use software that can be accessed from a PC, tablet, or mobile.
It’s a small, code-able device that can be programmed to light up using a series of tiny LEDs. A non-intimidating introduction to programming and making – switch on, program it to do something fun – wear it, customize it, develop new ideas.
micro:bit combines a pocket- sized coding device featuring several sensors and LED’s, with a website full of coding languages, helping you get creative – from making your own games to taking selfies, the possibilities are endless.
There are two programmable buttons that can be used to control games or pause and skip songs on a playlist. The micro:bit can even detect motion (using an accelerometer) and tell you which direction you are heading in (using a magnetometer/compass chip).
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
