Kitronik ZIP Halo for the BBC micro:bit

The Kitronik ZIP Halo fits directly to the micro:bit, and can be programmed using PXT or other languages such as Python. The circular arrangement lends itself to lots of games where you might need to point to a circular board, such as Wheel of Fortune, clocks, countdowns, or even as a directional pointer. As usual, Kitronik have great documentation that we've linked to from our store. Coming in at just under $20, it's great value.

Multiple Kitronik ZIP sticks can be connected end to end, allowing a longer arrays to be created and controlled from the BBC micro:bit. These is the same ZIP array found on the :MOVE mini buggy for the BBC micro:bit. The ZIP sticks also include mounting holes and can be placed up to 5m apart without the need for any additional circuitry.
