Micro:bit

You are here

BBC micro:bit allows you to make all sorts of cool creations, from robots to musical instruments – the possibilities are endless. This little device has an awful lot of features, like 25 red LED lights that can flash messages. There are two programmable buttons that can be used to control games or pause and skip songs on a playlist. Your BBC micro:bit can detect motion and tell you which direction you’re heading in, and it can use a low energy Bluetooth connection to interact with other devices and the Internet – clever!

Micro:bit is an open development board that allows you to run code on it and have access to all of the hardware. We have enabled debugging so that you can really interrogate the system – the more you know about all the bits and pieces that your BBC micro:bit is made of, the more you can hack it and create with it.

Boson Starter Kit for Micro:bit

  • Micro:bit is a pocket-sized microcontroller designed for kids and beginners to learn coding and electronics, letting them easily bring ideas into DIY digital games, interactive projects and robotics.
  • To explore even more possibilities with micro:bit, we have now combined it with DFRobot’s Boson modules, a set of modularized electronic blocks, suitable for every kids to start their hands-on journeys of creation.

Micro:bit Expansion Board for Boson

  • Micro:bit is a pocket-sized microcontroller designed for kids and beginners to learn coding and electronics, letting them easily bring ideas into DIY digital games, interactive projects and robotics.
  • However, on-board I/O rings and crocodile clips sometimes are not handy and safe enough to connect peripherals. To explore more possibilities with micro:bit, we have designed the micro:bit Expansion Board for Boson, a carry-on board that connects to micro:bit via edge connector.
