In the past few years, we have covered plenty of micro:bit powered robots and toys here. They are wonderful for teaching kids the basics of coding. BBC’s micro:bit v2 board lets you do even more. It has a built-in microphone to sense and react to sounds. It also has a capacitive touch sensor.
This new board has more power than its predecessor, so you can use it to build more powerful robots and toys. It is half the size of a credit card and has 25 LED lights to flash messages. It also has a power saving mode. micro:bit v2 works with your existing MakeCode blocks and MicroPython code.[HT]
