The BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that was launched in 2014, in collaboration with 29 other launch partners, all major leaders in business and academia.
The micro:bit is an educational and creative tool to encourage young people (children and adults) to get actively involved in writing software for computers.
Originally created to distribute to Year 7 UK students for computer education, the ideal age for children trying out the pocket-sized micro:bit would be those ages 11-12. Definitely a big update from the BBC Micro computers used in UK schools in the 1980s: it's 70 times smaller and 18 times faster than the original!
These tiny handheld programmable computers have LED light displays, buttons, sensors and many input/output features that, when programmed, can interact with you and your world.
All these features combine into one compact and versatile microcomputer that can be programmed for virtually anything. From digital watches to retro game simulators, only the sky's the limit with BBC micro:bit.
DISTRIBUTOR OF MICRO:BIT IN SINGAPORE
Kuriosity is a local micro:bit supplier in Singapore. In addition, we carry many different components that are compatible with this device.
We have the micro:bit AI Kit where everything you need to get started is included inside. Of course, you will definitely need some sensors and modules to work with your micro:bit, which you can find in our store.
However, connecting these components to the micro:bit can sometimes get a bit messy and expensive. Usually, these parts would be attached via soldering.
Who has a soldering iron just laying around their house?
With the new breakout board technology specially made to work with micro:bit, consumers interested in the technology with none of the mess can now rejoice!
The breakout board is intended to make wiring easier. You only need to connect your parts to the board without any additional materials.
Keep up to date with our breakout boards stock here!

MICRO:BIT PROGRAMMING SINGAPORE
There are two versions of the micro:bit.
Both versions work in the same way and you can continue to use the previous revision with all the micro:bit apps and editors as you would expect.
There are a variety of programming languages suitable for the micro:bit.
The main language BBC micro:bit is coded with Microsoft MakeCode, which is composed of simple colour-coded building blocks. The official micro:bit website also officially recommends using Python, Scratch and Swift.
While we don't hold courses for MakeCode, we do teach coding with Python!
Our courses are designed for other microcomputers, but the coding is universal.
