Electronic kits and parts - build, code, and learn!
Do you feel like you just don't have a CLUE? Well, we can help with that - get a CLUE by picking up this Adafruit sensor-packed development board. We wanted to build some projects that have a small screen and a lot of sensors. To make it compatible with existing projects, we made it the same shape and size as the BBC micro:bit and with the same edge-connector on the bottom with 5 big pads so it will fit into your existing robot kit or 'bit add-on.
While the CLUE looks a bit like a 'bit it has totally redesigned-from-scratch technology:
Please note that at this time there is no MakeCode or Scratch support for the nRF52840 chipset (of course, we’d love to see MakeCode but there is no ETA when it may be added). While the CLUE is the same outline and we did our best to make the edge-connector pins match up, most cases for the 'bit wont fit the CLUE, and code may not be immediately compatible without adjustment, especially since only Arduino and CircuitPython are supported at this time.
The CLUE is designed for projects that use a ton of sensors - and they're all built in! So you can start exploring your world, measuring, logging and learning. You can transmit data over Bluetooth to a computer or mobile device for data plotting and logging, or save it to the built in storage. Why did we call it CLUE? Check out our post!
Product Dimensions: 51.7mm x 42.2mm x 12.3mm / 2.0" x 1.7" x 0.5"
Clue is awesome. The built in functionality and sensors make it a super teaching tool to introduce programming and technology.
