NEW PRODUCT – Crazy Circuits Bit Board Kit – Makes micro:bit Lego-Compatible


Welcome to the world of programming and automation with the BBC micro:bit. The Crazy Circuits Bit Board Kit from Brown Dog Gadgets sets you up with everything you need to start making in minutes!

The Bit Board lets makers combine micro:bit and bricks together to create all sorts of amazing projects.  No soldering is required, it brings the ease and joy of crafting to electronics and micro:bit!

Like all Crazy Circuits components, the Bit Board snaps onto any LEGO-compatible component. Connect other Crazy Circuits components with the included Maker Tape. Use a ribbon cable to connect sensors, or plug a servo into the Bit Board. Use the built-in relay to control DC motors and devices.

Thanks to MakeCode support, micro:bit offers a much more visual way of working and programming with microcontrollers. The Bit Board Adapter was designed as a solution for teaching programming via micro:bit’s graphic interface without breadboards and jumper cables. The brick plate becomes the canvas for your electronic projects.

Note: a required micro:bit is not included. You can use an original micro:bit v1 or the micro:bit v2 (or even an Adafruit CLUE) – if it has the same edge connector as a :bit it will plug right in

Visit the Brown Dog Curriculum page for tutorials and inspiration on how to use this kit to learn electronics the “Crazy Circuits” way.
