This project can be completed in under 5 minutes. This tutorial will show you how to assemble and program the Micro:Bit temperature monitor with ☒CHIPs. The code for this project is simple using Micro:bit’s drag-and-drop platform.
I built this temperature monitor using the Micro:Bit and a couple of ☒CHIPs from XinaBox. It is a very simple and quick build. The XinaBoxtechnology made this project extremely easy to do by eliminating the need for soldering and tools. The Micro:bit interface allows me to program easily. You can easily modify the code to add other data from the Weather Sensor, such as Barometric Pressure, Relative Humidity and Altitude.
