Send the time from a watch to a BBC micro:bit #microbit @MSMakecode @blogmywiki
Previously, BlogMyWiki got a BBC micro:bit sending temperature data to a BangleJS watch by Bluetooth. This used a very simple, but deprecated, Eddystone beacon radio protocol.
What about sending data the other way, from the watch to a micro:bit. What does a watch have that micro:bit doesn’t? A real time clock!
See how this was done with Microsoft MakeCode, check out the video below and more in the post here
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.
