BBC Micro bit
Accessories, Board & Kits for the Micro Bit
You can use your BBC micro:bit for all sorts of cool creations, from robots to musical instruments – the possibilities are endless. The micro:bit is a handheld, fully programmable computer being given free to every Year 7 or equivalent child across the UK. It’s 70 times smaller and 18 times faster than the original BBC Micro computers used in schools in the early 1980s.
This little device has an awful lot of features, like 25 red LED lights that can flash messages. There are two programmable buttons that can be used to control games or pause and skip songs on a playlist. Your BBC micro:bit can detect motion and tell you which direction you’re heading in, and it can use a low energy Bluetooth connection to interact with other devices and the Internet – clever!
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!
