BBC micro:bit (Board)
The BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that you can code, customise and control to bring your digital ideas, games and apps to life.
BBC micro:bit is a small, codable device that can be programmed to light up using a series of tiny LEDs. A non-intimidating introduction to programming and making – switch on, program it to do something fun – wear it, customise it, develop new ideas.
BBC micro:bit combines a pocket-sized coding device featuring several sensors and LED’s, with a website full of coding languages, helping you get creative – from making your own games to taking selfies, the possibilities are endless. Each element is completely programmable via easy-to-use software on a dedicated website that can be accessed from a PC, tablet, or mobile.
There are two programmable buttons that can be used to control games or pause and skip songs on a playlist. The BBC micro:bit can even detect motion and tell you which direction you are heading in. Built-in Low Energy Bluetooth connectivity enables the BBC micro:bit to interact with other devices and the Internet.
