The Micro:Bit is a pocket-sized micro-controller which designed by the BBC for Children and starters learning how to program.

The device is described as half the size of a credit card but including an ARM Cortex-M0 processor; An accelerometer that detects the acceleration of the micro:bit and tricks motions like tilt, shake, free fall and etc; Bluetooth and USB connection;25 individually programmable LEDs which allows you to display text, numbers, and pictures through a combination of ON and OFF LEDs; and two programmable buttons. It can be powered by either USB or an external battery pack.Furthermore You can control the external device through 25 pins on the edge connector of the micro:bit.

It is widely used in STEAM education and helping encourage children to get actively involved in writing software for computers and building new things, rather than being consumers of media. You can use your micro:bit to code,customize,and control it from anywhere.More than that,it is available for all kinds of creations whatever it is.As for what you can do with micro:bit, that’s only limited to your imagination. You can program it using Microsoft Blocks, python or JavaScript language.
