The Micro:Bit is a pocket-sized microcontroller designed by the BBC for Children and starters learning how to program.
The device is described as half the size of a credit card but includes an ARM Cortex-M0 processor; An accelerometer that detects the acceleration of the micro:bit and tricks motions like tilt, shake, free fall and etc; Bluetooth and USB connection;25 individually programmable LEDs which allows you to display text, numbers, and pictures through a combination of ON and OFF LEDs; and two programmable buttons. It can be powered by either USB or an external battery pack. Furthermore, You can control the external device through 25 pins on the edge connector of the micro:bit.
