Video on micro:bit https://youtu.be/Wuza5WXiMkc

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

Containing 1x micro:bit and a Quick Start Guide in a single retail pack, this is the ideal option for makers to get started creating BBC micro:bit projects and inventing solutions (requires a USB cable for programming purposes, and a battery holder & 2x AAA batteries to power your BBC micro:bit if not connected to your computer - sold separately). 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:bit has a website full of coding languages, lesson plans, tutorials, and fun ideas
  • Size: approx. 5cm x 4cm
  • Weight: 8g
  • Microprocessor: 32-bit ARM® Cortex™ M0 CPU
  • A 5x5 LED matrix with 25 red LEDs to light up and can display animiated patterns, scrolling text and alphanumeric characters
  • Two programmable buttons. Use them as a games controller, or control music on a smart phone
  • On-board motion detector or 3-AXIS digital accelerometer that can detect movement e.g. shake, tilt or free-fall and use it to control motion activated games
  • A built-in compass, 3D magnetometer to sense which direction you're facing and your movement in degrees and detect the presence of certain metals and magnets
  • Bluetooth® Smart Technology. Connect the micro:bit to other micro:bits, devices, phones, tablets, cameras and other everday objects
  • Five Ring Input and Output (I/O) including power (PWR), ground (GRD) and 3 x I/O. The micro:bit can read values from sensors and control things like motors or robots
  • 20 pin edge connector: This allows the micro:bit to be connected to other devices such as Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Galileo and Kano through a standard connector
  • Micro-USB controller: This is controlled by a separate processor and presents the micro:bit to a computer as a memory stick

WS AlphaBot2 robot building kit for BBC micro:bit (no micro:bit included) (Alphabot 2 micro:bit)

Please note: Micro:bit is not included

Overview

This AlphaBot2 robot kit is designed to use with the BBC micro:bit (not included). It features rich common robot functions including line tracking, obstacle avoiding, ultrasonic ranging, Bluetooth/2.4G remote control, etc.

Thanks to the highly integrated modular design, it is fairly easy to assemble by a snap, no soldering, no wiring. After a few minutes spent on hardware assembing, you're almost there, our open source demo codes is ready to help you get started fast.

AlphaBot2 Features

AlphaBot2 employs a 2-layer structure to provide excellent stability and compatibility.

AlphaBot2-Base, the lower base chassis:

  • 5-ch infrared sensor, analog output, combined with PID algorithm, stable line tracking
  • Onboard modules like line tracking, obstacle avoiding, needs no messy wiring
  • TB6612FNG dual H-bridge motor driver, compared with L298P, it's more efficient, more compact, and less heating
  • N20 micro gear motor, with metal gears, low noise, high accuracy
  • Onboard RGB LEDs, true color lighting, pretty cool

AlphaBot2 for micro:bit, the upper adapter board for controller:

  • micro:bit dedicated connector, for easily connecting with the micro:bit
  • MP1584 voltage regulator, provides stable 5V output
  • RT9193-33 voltage regulator, provides stable 3.3V voltage to the micro:bit
  • TLC1543 AD acquisition chip, allows the micro:bit to use analog sensors
  • PCA9685 PWM control chip, I/O expander
  • Onboard buzzer to play music
