Introducing BitBot V2, taking the much-loved BitBot to the next level. We have made several changes, some subtle, some not so subtle, to give a much-improved experience of using and working with the BitBot.
Note: Does not Include BBC micro:bit. The BBC micro:bit can be purchased separately here.
- Chunky wheels with rubber tyres for maximum grip
- Microbit mounted vertically
- Line sensors no longer share pins with the Microbit buttons - removes all Bluetooth pairing issues and allows use of buttons in your code
- Pen holder is fitted as standard. Mounted directly over the pivot point for better drawing
- Indicator LEDs added for line follower sensors
- Makecode extension has been changed so code is compatible with both Classic and V2 versions
- Buzzer now connected on Pin 0 so you can play music through it
- 2 micro-metal gear motors. Motor gearboxes fully covered (minimises fluff in the gears)
- Front ball caster
- 12x Smart RGB LEDs 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.
- 2x digital line following sensors: Code your own line-following robots and race them to see whose code produces the fastest lap time!
- 2x analog light sensors (front left and front right): Your Bit:Bot XL 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.
- 1x Buzzer: So you can make beeping sounds or music whenever you want.
- Powered from integrated (3x)AA battery holder with on/off switch and blue indicator LED
- Easily plug your BBC micro:bit in and out using the vertical edge connector
- Expansion connections at the front for accessories
