The BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized codeable computer with motion detection, a built-in compass, LED display, and Bluetooth technology built in.

It measures 4cm by 5cm, is available in a range of colours, and designed to be fun and easy to use. It can be coded with something simple in seconds – like lighting up its LEDs or displaying a pattern – with no prior knowledge of computing.

It also connects to other devices, sensors, kits and objects, and is a companion to Arduino, Galileo, Kano, littleBits and Raspberry Pi, acting as a spring board to more complex learning.

Each element is completely programmable via easy-to-use software on a dedicated website that can be accessed from a PC, tablet or mobile.

Product Overview

Get creative, get connected & get coding with the micro:bit go. A complete set containing all the parts and inspirational ideas to get started with the micro:bit. Each micro:bit go contains 1x micro:bit, USB cable, battery holder & 2x AAA batteries along with a Quick Start Guide featuring 4 fun ideas all in a retail ready pack. The micro:bit go is the quickest and easiest way for children to get going with the micro:bit. The micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that you can code, customise and control to bring your digital ideas, games and apps to life. Measuring 4cm by 5cm, and designed to be fun and easy to use, users can create anything from games and animations to scrolling stories at school, at home and on the go - all you need is imagination and creativity. The micro:bit is completely programmable. That means each of its LEDs can be individually programmed as can its buttons, inputs and outputs, accelerometer, magnetometer and Bluetooth Smart Technology. The micro:bi

Picade DIY kit - 8 inch display (3B1 Picade 8inch)

Picade

The ultimate desktop retro arcade machine! Picade is a Raspberry Pi-powered mini arcade that you build yourself, with authentic arcade controls, a high resolution 4:3 display that's ideal for retro gaming, and a punchy speaker to hear those 8-bit game soundtracks at their best

The all-new Picade has been completely redesigned, from the inside out! There's new artwork, a new display and display driver board, dedicated power button, an all-new Picade X HAT, easier wiring, easier access to the interior of the cabinet, beautiful new packaging, a bunch of extra goodies (stickers and an enamel Picade pin), and a gorgeous Picade poster and assembly instructions.

Picade comes in kit form, and it'll take around two to three hours to build. The cabinet is made from powder-coated MDF, giving it a quality look and feel similar to a full-size arcade. All you'll need to add is a Raspberry Pi, power supply, and micro-SD card.

You can watch a video on  Picade at https://youtu.be/5iUuOH1Ip4A

Cabinet features

  • Black, powder-coated panels
  • Acrylic marquee and console with authentic artwork
  • Push-fit arcade buttons
  • Joystick with black ball top
  • 3" speaker (5W, 4Ω)
  • Easy access with removable back panel
  • Dedicated illuminated power button
  • Grippy rubber feet
  • Dimensions: 350x230x210mm

8-inch display features

  • 1024x768 (4:3 ratio) IPS (wide viewing angle) display
  • Pimoroni-designed and manufactured HDMI display driver board and keypad controls
  • Powered by micro-USB cable (included) from your Pi

10-inch display features

  • 1024x768 (4:3 ratio) IPS (wide viewing angle) display
  • Pimoroni-designed and manufactured HDMI display driver board and keypad controls
  • Powered by micro-USB cable (included) from your Pi

Picade X HAT features

  • Easy DuPont connectors for buttons and joystick
  • Push-fit speaker terminals
  • I2S audio DAC with 3W amplifier (mono)
  • Power management, power switch pins, and power button
  • 4-way joystick inputs
  • 6 player buttons
  • 4 utility buttons
  • Metal standoffs to hold your Picade X HAT securely

Extras

  • Picade enamel pin badge
  • Pimoroni Super Sticker Selection
  • Picade poster / assembly instructions

What's new!?

The cabinet is more compact, so it fits more neatly on your desk, but has a higher resolution 8"  or 10" display (1024x768). The display is driven by a new Pimoroni-designed and manufactured driver board, with keypad controls. It's an IPS panel, so it looks great from any viewing angle!

The all-new Picade X HAT is packed full of useful features. We've moved from more fiddly screw terminals to simple DuPont connectors that just push in, and the speaker terminals are the same easy push-fit connectors that we use on pHAT BEAT.

There's dedicated power management on-board Picade X HAT; just plug your micro-USB power supply into the HAT and it'll power your Pi through its pins. The power button connected to the HAT means that once your Pi is safely shutdown, the power will be cut completely to the Pi. A simple press of the power button will boot your Picade up again.

The new buttons in Picade are lower profile, and the new joystick has a single connector rather than the eight spade connectors on our previous Picade joystick.

A gorgeous new neon-look Picade logo on the marquee, and rainbow stripes on the console and screen-surround, evoke classic consoles, as do the assembly instructions and poster.

Building your Picade

We hope the included assembly instructions have everything you need to build your Picade, but we've also filmed a complete build video of Picade that you can watch as you build and learn some handy tips and tricks. Find it at https://youtu.be/gTgu1fUVsmw

The sections are also available separately in a playlist here.

We've also put together an online tutorial that incorporates the assembly instructions, important tips and amendments, and the videos for each section, so do check that out!

Software setup

We recommend the RetroPie operating system for your Picade. You can download it from the RetroPie website and then burn it to a micro-SD card with Etcher.

Connect a USB keyboard to your Pi, and connect to Wi-Fi in the RetroPie menu. Press F4 to exit to the terminal and then type curl https://get.pimoroni.com/picadehat | bash to run the Picade HAT installer.

Reboot your Pi, if it doesn't prompt you to. Press the "Alt" key on your keyboard and then select "Configure input" to configure your Picade's controls. You'll find that the sound and power button should both be working now too!

Notes

If your Picade display doesn't show anything when you first power it up, then it could be because the HDMI display is not being detected by the Raspberry Pi. This can happen because power isn't supplied to the USB ports on the Raspberry Pi for the first few seconds of booting. The solution is to edit the /boot/config.txt file on your RetroPie SD card, and add hdmi_force_hotplug=1 on a new line at the bottom of the file.

If you'd like to design your own artwork for your Picade, then we've made a handy PDF that has the outlines and dimensions of the marquee, screen shim, and console. You can download it from the Picade HAT GitHub repo here.

What's new in the Pro model?

1. Improved Mechanical Properties

The Ender 3 Pro has been redesigned with a more sturdy, 40×40 aluminum extrusion for the Y-axis base. This should improve the overall stability of the printing surface.

Also, better bearing wheels deliver more stiffness, reduce friction, give better dimensional stability – and also help to reduce the overall noise level.

2. Improved Extruder

According to their press release, Creality also exchanged their extruder to an “MK-10” version. The company boasts it should “greatly reduce the risk of clogging and uneven extrusion”.

3. New Magnetic Printing Surface

Last, but not least, the Ender 3 Pro now comes equipped with a “C-MAG” magnetic printing bed. The sheet is removable and flexible, so the prints can be plucked off the build plate more easily. According to Creality, their textured surface adheres to all types of filament better than traditional methods such as tape, glue, or hairspray.

4. Improved Power Supply



Power supply was replaced with better Meanwell power supply

5. Vent changes



The Vent on the controller move to the bottom of the enclosure to prevent dust and other particles from falling in
