I ordered six of these for an after school class I'm teaching at my daughter's school. The first thing I notice weird about the microixel board is when you plug the Microbit board into the microixel the five "ring pins" labeled 0, 1, 2, 3V and GND are in reverse order on the microixel board, and I don't know why this is. Are the pins just mis-labeled? Or are there hidden traces (perhaps behind the connector) that route the proper signals to the pins as they are labeled? It has me mystified. I guess I will give it a try and see what I find. For now, my tentative rating is 3.
Hi William - The pixels become the 'front' of the microbit, and it was decided to keep the pin order if the unit was facing you, There are traces making the pin out correct when the pixels are facing you.

I don't know how to makecode.microbit.org add microixel driver. Could I control the colour and bright ?
The microixel was delivered quickly.I have enjoyed playing with this. It was simple to install and micropython (using mu) runs well on it. Played with getting the neopixels to respond to music -

Got the NeoPixel Board next day after ordering, great service. Downloaded the hex code for the rainbow display, worked first time. The supplied box the NeoPixel came in is an execllent diffuser and realy shows off the program, now I wonder if I can do something spooky with this for Halloween.
