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 (www.microbit.org) that can be accessed from a PC, tablet or mobile.

Great product, Awesome service

Product is spot on and the recipient loves it. The device organisation gives great instructions and support in getting started so getting to grips with learning coding actually stays fun. https://microbit.org. Small devices were awesome in getting my order shipped and delivered in time for the birthday and turning it into a gift despite it being midst CV-19 lock down and my being on the other side of the world. Thanks.

Microbit starter kit

Microbit starter kit. I ordered about 50 of these this year and they have always been delivered promptly with exceptional phone service. A really great company to deal with.

Great product, great service

Great little product. We got it to fit into a Tiny 2 robot and it's perfect. Easy to use, great idea for some interactive educational fun, even if you didn't have a kid to do it with. We got customising our programs right from the start. Price was right (slightly cheaper than other places) and delivery and service spot on.

Quick delivery, great product.

Everything arrived as described, the product works well and as intended. Best price I could find after some research. Thanks.

Excellent Device, Excellent Service!

I bought one of these for my son, who instantly became obsessed with it. Initially I ordered another one from a different supplier and wanted to return this one, the reply from CS was within the hour, he was patient, kind and made it easy to return it, but I decided to keep it as it's just a fantastic device. He offered a super speedy response, and was very accommodating. 10/10 would buy again and will recommend to my friends.
