Little Bird's Description of the BBC micro:bit Go Bundle

Description

The British Invasion is here! No, not music...microcontrollers! New to Australia is the newest and easiest way to learn programming and electronics - the BBC micro:bit.

Designed specifically for kids and beginners, the  micro:bit  is a pocket-sized computer that you can code, customize and control to bring your digital ideas, games and apps to life. It’s a small, code-able device that is a non-intimidating introduction to programming and making – switch on, program it to do something fun – wear it, customize it, develop new ideas.

The micro:bit platform combines the 'bit, a pocket-sized coding device featuring several sensors and LEDs, with an awesome website full of coding examples and projects. Start out with the video tutorials, then check out the ideas page to get creative. From making your own games to taking selfies, the possibilities are endless!

This is the micro:bit Go Bundle, with batteries, battery holder & USB cable. For the individual micro:bit (no extras) click here

The micro:bit is based off of the nRF51822 microcontroller, which has built in Bluetooth LE radio. There are two programmable buttons that can be used to control games, send a radio message, activate the display, etc. The micro:bit can detect motion (using an accelerometer) and tell you which direction you are heading in (using a magnetometer/compass chip). On the bottom is an expansion port, with 5 alligator-clip friendly pads and additional card-edge contacts for 19 total I/O pins. Each of these sensors, inputs, and outputs, is completely programmable via easy-to-use software that can be accessed from a PC, laptop, tablet, or mobile. You can use MakeCode/PXT blocks or micro Python to start your programming adventure. Advanced programmers can graduate to mbed for super-powerful C or C++ programming.

Exciting, right? Well, the  micro:bit Go bundle is the perfect starter kit for the BBC micro:bit. It includes everything you need to begin learning about hardware and software, even a little USB cable and batteries. No programming or hardware experience is necessary!

The micro:bit Go Bundle contains:

  • BBC micro:bit
  • Micro USB cable, 6" end-to-end
  • 2 x AAA battery holder
  • 2 x AAA battery

If you’re new to coding and hardware, then the micro:bit Go Bundle is a great place to start. It’s incredibly easy to use and a perfect platform to help you leapfrog onto other microcontrollers and computers such as Circuit Playground, Arduino, Feather, or even Raspberry Pi.

Set up Arduino IDE for micro:bit

Did you know that you can program the micro:bit with the Arduino IDE? Yes, you can. 

In this guide, we will show you how to install the Arduino IDE and set it up for use with the micro:bit. 

After completing this guide, you will be able to utilise many useful libraries that can only be used in the Arduino IDE, for the micro:bit and various sensors or actuators!
