Micro:bit v2

Micro:bit v2 is a pocket-sized microcontroller designed for kids and beginners learning how to program, letting them easily bring ideas into DIY digital games, interactive projects, and robotics. You can use your BBC micro:bit for all sorts of cool creations, from robots to musical instruments. The possibilities are endless.

You can code, customize, and control micro:bit to bring your digital ideas, games, and apps to life. Measuring 4cm by 5cm, and designed to be fun and easy to use, users can create anything using micro:bit, from games and animations to scrolling stories at school, at home, and on the go. All you need is imagination and creativity.

micro:bit v2 has a lot of features and is completely programmable. Each of its LEDs can be individually programmed. It is also equipped with a MEMS microphone, speaker, and touch-sensitive logo. If you want to realize wireless projects, it is equipped with a 2.4GHz micro:bit radio and BLE Bluetooth 5.0. Also, It has 25 red LEDs that can flash messages and two programmable buttons that can be used to control games or pause and skip songs on a playlist. micro:bit v2 can also detect motion and tell you in which direction you’re heading in with the help of the onboard accelerometer.
