micro:bit V2 Essentials Kit

R 499.00

Micro:bit V2 is a pocket-sized microcontroller designed for kids and beginners learning how to program, letting them easily bring ideas into DIY digital games, interactive projects and robotics.micro:bit comes with a variety of on-board modules, including a 5x5 LED matrix (also supports light detection), 2 programmable buttons, motion detector, compass and bluetooth? Smart module. Additionally, you may attach more modules such as a servo motor, RGB LED lights through five I/O rings or 20 edge connectors.

And here comes the micro:bit Go bundle, an on-the-go starter kit with USB cable and battery holder, allowing you to upload program and carry it around right after the unboxing.

Overview:

micro:bit V2 is a pocket-sized microcontroller designed for kids and beginners learning how to program, letting them easily bring ideas into DIY digital games, interactive projects and robotics. The micro:bit comes with a variety of on-board modules, including. a 5x5 LED matrix (also supports light detection), 2 programmable buttons, motion detector, compass and Bluetooth® Smart module. Additionally, you may attach more modules such as a servo motor, RGB LED lights through five I/O rings or 20 edge connectors. microbit: v2 has over four times the processing power and eight times as much RAM as the original micro:bit! As well the new onboard speaker and microphone, v2 also has an extra touch sensitive button and an edge connector that's redesigned to work better with crocodile clips. micro:bit v2 should be compatible with most existing micro:bit add-on boards and accessories (though there are a few exceptions - check the shop page of the add-on in question to be sure).

micro:bit can be programmed with Microsoft Blocks Editor via graphical editor or JavaScript editor. The Microsoft Blocks Editor is available on Windows, macOS, IOS and Android, supporting wireless programming via mobile devices.
