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).
Coming soon, at Adafruit. Sign up now to be notified when they’re in stock, they’re going to go FAST.
