Remember the compass and accelerometer on micro:bit? They give micro:bit the ability to detect motion and direction, how interesting and useful. Need more amazing skills? Maybe sensing the temperature, the humidity, the ultraviolet, or the sound, maybe detecting the flame, soil moisture, maybe emitting an infrared beam to detect obstacles on the way... All in this micro:bit sense pack.
By the way, you should never worry about running short of IO pins, we also provide an edge connector expansion board, make it easier to connect more peripherals to the micro:bit.
The BBC micro:bit is an open development board that allows you to run code on it and have access to all of the hardware.
You can use your BBC micro:bit for 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.
