BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer/microcontroller that you can learn how to program in just a few steps. You can create robots, games, musical instruments and so much more using the onboard sensors. You have multiple options when it comes to programming devices including phones, tablets, and computers.
The Go Bundle comes with the following parts:
- 1x micro:bit Board
- 1x micro USB Cable — 15cm
- 1x Battery Holder — 2xAAA
- 2x AAA Batteries
The board has so much going on the front and back, as on the front it comes with many awesome programmable components like:
- 25 individual LEDs
- 2 push buttons
- basic light sensor
- 3V Power Port
- 3 digital/analogue input/output rings
The back of the micro:bit gives a better insight into its capabilities including:
- Bluetooth and radio (wireless communication)
- Micro USB connector
- Battery connector (AA battery holder)
- 32-bit cortex M0 CPU | 16-bit RAM | Bluetooth low energy | Temperature sensor
- Accelerometer and compass (motion sensors)
- 20 Pin edge connector
The radio feature is used to connect two or more micro:bits together for bigger and more creative project ideas.
