The latest revision of the BBC micro:bit is designed to be completely familiar to anyone who has used the original device. It’s the same size, shape, looks very similar, and works in the same way. Every program that could run on a micro:bit version 1 can be re-built to run on the latest revision. The editors will support both versions simultaneously for features common to both boards.
The latest revision builds upon the current micro:bit experience by refining the board and adding widely requested sound making and sensing capabilities.
Amongst the micro:bit features, ‘sound’ is in a unique position of being already present in the editors, but not on the board, so it is already familiar to teachers, yet the speaker and microphone on the board are transformative in the kinds of applications people can build.
Introducing the brand-new micro: bit V2, a must-have for technology and STEM enthusiasts. Now available with improved features to the hugely successful predecessor board with over 4 million boards being sold worldwide. This powerful, pocket-sized computer will be loved by all that use it. Designed to teach kids coding and solve problems using technology.
