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).
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
