The Bit:Bot Robot is a feature-packed little robot that is almost ready to go, requiring no soldering, no wires and nothing more than a screwdriver to complete it.
The Bit:Bot turns your micro:bit from a stand-alone programmable computer to an awesome mobile robot allowing you to explore and code the BBC micro:bit using any of the languages available.
The Bit:Bot is powered by 3x AA batteries which are also used to power your micro:bit so the original micro:bit battery holder is not needed. The micro:bit itself is easily plugged in and removed using the edge connector on the top of the robot.
Also available separately are two versions of the Ultrasonic Distance Sensor: a removable version and a soldered one.
Batteries and micro:bit sold separately.
