The BBC micro:bit is a small computer that unlocks a world of possibility for those of all ages and programming abilities. Although it was aimed originally at education, with it's built in Bluetooth , motion detection, a compass, and an LED display, it could also be described as a great choice of platform for a varied range of projects.
Here at Proto-Pic we were one of the first companies to fall in love with this platform, ever since we've been developing and manufacturing a wide range of accessories, educational teaching aids and for the maker community.
Coding with the BBC microbit is a breeze. The Microsoft PXT system, allows you to either write code in micropython if you know it, or use a drag and drop based approach using a series of "blocks". Although initially aimed at kids, the microbit is proving really popular with the whole maker community.
We have a full range of micro:bit accessories here at Proto-PIC. From the incredibly colourful micro:pixel - a neopixel add on for the micro:bit, to the exhi:bit board - a development system board that breaks out all the pins of the micro:bit and makes classroom management of projects a breeze! We have micro:bit 3D CAD resources available here
