BBC Micro:Bit - a superb

24 March 2018
This is the one of the most exciting and innovative pieces of embedded computing or IoT related technology I've seen since the Raspberry Pi. The Pi is a superb bit of kit and is great at what it does but if you are new to coding, it is not necessarily the best place to start. If you are looking for a device to get started with, this is it. The MicroBit can be programmed in a block type language that is ideal for very young children as well as JavaScript and Python and then C.

Cheap Fun

6 August 2018
I bought this for my 8 year old, and we had lots of fun programming it together. We made a paper, rocks, scissors game and hooked up an old car speaker to have it play some tunes. Somehow my son preferred this to to the other programmable toys I've bought him (Edison, Sphero, ozobot etc). Programmable from pc, mac or ipad (via cable or bluetooth).
Cheap and easy way to introduce kids to programming and code something that functions in the real world away from the screen.I highly recommend it (and not just for kids).
