  • Bit:Bot Robot for BBC Micro:Bit (BitBot for MicroBit) (BITBOT)
    Bit:Bot Fully Integrated Robot for the BBC Micro:Bit

    NB. BBC Micro:Bit is NOT included unless specifically selected with the checkbox

    This (almost) ready-assembled robot requires no soldering, no wires and nothing more than a screwdriver to complete it.

    The Bit:Bot fully engages children and adults alike, allowing you to explore and code the BBC Micro:Bit using any of the languages available (not all features are supported in all languages)

    Learn here how to control the Bit:Bot with your Bluetooth phone

     *NEW* There is now a Microsoft PXT package for Bit:Bot (thanks to Sten Roger Sandvik, @stenrs on Twitter). Go to the Advanced tab or the Tools gear icon and select Add Package, then search for BitBot
     

    Check out these features:
    • 2 micro-metal gear motors. Both fully controllable in software, for both speed (0 to 100%) and direction (forward or reverse)
    • Wheels with rubber tyres for maximum grip
    • Really smooth metal ball front caster
    • 12 mini neopixels in 2 sets of 6 along the arms either side. Select any colour for any pixel, produce stunning lighting effects as your Bit:Bot moves around
    • 2 digital line following sensors. Code your own line-following robots and race them to see whose code produces the fastest lap time!
    • 2 analog light sensors (front left and front right) so your Bit:Bot can be programmed to follow a light source such as a torch, or you could code it to go and hide in the darkest place it can find
    • Buzzer, so you can make beeping sounds whenever you want
    • Powered from integrated 3xAA battery holder with on/off switch and blue indicator LED
    • Easily plug your BBC micro:bit in and out using the edge connector
    • Extension port for addition neopixels (such as McRoboFace)
    • Expansion connections at the front for additional sensors (Ultrasonic rangefinder available now, more in development)
    Optionally, you can add an Ultrasonic Distance Sensor (rangefinder) module. The sensor can be either soldered to the module, or connected via a socket. No soldering is required for either version. The socketed version makes it easier to connect a micro-USB lead to the Micro:Bit, but the soldered version is more robust.

    We also have an option for a pen holder that is fitted at the back. This can be plain, or have LEDs on to create a glow ring effect around the pen

  • Bit:2:Pi BBC Micro:Bit adaptor for Raspberry Pi Addons (Bit2Pi) (BIT2PI)
    Bit:2:Pi Allows the BBC Micro:Bit to Connect to Raspberry Pi Addon Boards

    NB. BBC Micro:Bit and Unicorn pHat are NOT included

    The Bit:2:Pi enables you to re-use all those hundreds of Raspberry Pi addon boards and HATs.

    Simply plug your Micro:Bit into the edge connector and the required Raspberry Pi Hat onto the GPIO connector, then program your Micro:Bit to control the new board. Most Raspberry Pi boards are very simple to program as they are controlled by simple on/off signals on the GPIO connector which are easily copied in the Micro:Bit. We have also used Neopixel hats (eg. Unicorn from Pimoroni) with great success and are happily communicating via I2C as well.

    Selecting which Micro:Bit pin is connected to which GPIO pin, is via a set of configurable jumpers. There is a default set of connections that works for the most common boards, including I2C and SPI connections, but it is a simple matter to unplug a jumper or two, and replace it with a longer wire jumper (4 included) to connect your preferred pins.

    Of course, the original code for the Raspberry Pi won't run directly on the micro:bit but with support from our community we will get more and more boards working and with example microbit code.

    Current boards tested are:
    4tronix: PlayHat, Picon Zero, PiStop, motor controllers
    Pimoroni: Pibrella, Unicorn pHat/HAT. Explorer, Enviro pHat, Blinkt, Scroll pHat

    This board is supplied in two versions, both fully soldered:
    1. Without battery holder
    2. Including 3xAA battery holder so you can run your Raspberry Pi addons without wires!

    Power is supplied to the board and the micro:bit via the micro-USB connector on the side, but there is also an option to add a battery holder to allow completely wire-free operation.

  • Robo:Bit Robotics controller for the BBC Micro:Bit (RoboBit) (ROBOBIT)
    Robo:Bit Robotics Controller for the BBC Micro:Bit

    NB. BBC Micro:Bit is NOT included unless specifically selected with the checkbox

    This ready-assembled robotics controller board is ready to accept your BBC Micro:Bit, battery power (3 or 4 cells of AA is ideal) and motors of your choice to make your own DIY robot. Use a small box, ice-cream carton or similar to house everything and you can build a really affordable robot for your school, coding club or home.

    Robo:Bit has been cleverly designed so that with a few hexagonal pillars and screws, you can fit the motors, battery box, front casters, line following sensors and even ultrasonic distance sensors and have a very neat and simple robot!

    Robo:Bit uses the ever popular DRV8833 motor driver which allows you to use most small motors that operate in the 3-6V range.

    Connections are provided for lots of the BBC Micro:Bit pins, and all have immediate 3-pin access to power (3.3V) and ground. There are three separate pins for 5V if you need the extra voltage (but don't feed back 5V to the micro:bit as it won't like it!). This is the GVS (Ground, Volts, Signal) system for sensors and servos etc.

    On the left side of the board (the "front" of the robot) is a set of 4 offset holes into which you can simply poke an HC-SR04 ultrasonic distance sensor. The offset holes and gold plating ensure a good connection, but you can also solder it in permanently for added robustness.

    More details in our blog

    In addition to the Robo:Bit board itself, we offer the following options:
    • Fixings pack. Screws, hexagonal pillars and a Pololu caster. This allows you to fit standard yellow motors (not included) and immediately get a robot working
    • Line follower pack. Includes 2 line follower modules, hexagonal pillars, screws and short 10cm GVS leads
    • BBC Micro:Bit - just in case you don't already have one!

  • PiStop Road Crossing Base for Raspberry Pi (RPI-CROSS)
    PiStop Road Crossing Base

    This products is an oversized Hat Addon Board for your Raspberry Pi that enables you to plug in 4 PiStops (optional extra) and control them in a standard 4-way road crossing

    In addition to 2 pairs of traffic lights, there are:
    • Two pairs of pedestrian crossing lights, each with red and Green LEDs on both sides of the roads
    • Two pairs of buttons which you can use to control the pedestrian crossing lights or something else if you choose
    • Buzzer, so you can make a sound when pedestrians are allowed to cross
    This can all be programmed easily on your Raspberry Pi in Python (with GPIO-Zero or RPI-GPIO) or in Scratch (ScratchGPIO)

    Notes:
    1. PiStops are optional extras
    2. Figures shown are not included
    3. Requires a Raspberry Pi with 40-pin GPIO connector

  • Ultrasonic Distance Sensor for Bit:Bot (BitBot) (BITSON)
    Ultrasonic Distance Sensor for Bit:Bot

    NB. Bit:Bot not included

    Ready-Soldered, just attach to your Bit:Bot with the screws provided and off you go.

    Use Microsoft PXT (or MicroPython with some awkward code) to read the distance to an obstacle, then program your Bit:Bot to avoid it.

    Both Ping and Echo signals are on the same pin (Pin 15)

    This accessory is available in 2 flavours:
    1. With the ultrasonic sensor soldered directly to the PCB
    2. With a socket soldered on the PCB that you can plug the sensor into
    The sensor soldered into the PCB is much more robust and reliable, but has a big drawback in that you cannot access the micro-USB connector on the micro:bit unless you either remove the micro:bit or use a right-angled USB lead

    The socketed version allows most USB leads to access the micro:bit, but it isn't as robust.
