With the MakerBit, project building and further experimentation is fun and efficient!

Here are two short videos introducing the MakerBit and showing how the LEDs and touch sensors add interactivity to any model or posterboard project.

The MakerBit System

The MakerBit system is actually 3 distinct parts, and they can even be used separately from one another.

The first part of the system is the MakerBit board, which is basically just a bridge between the digital world of the micro:bit and digital media, and the physical world of sensors, actuators, and student projects.

For "smart car" robotics projects, and advanced experimentation and invention, the MakerBit+R board provides the most versatile and efficient platform for the micro:bit available.

On the micro:bit is the MakerBit Program which recognizes the 12 touch sensors of the MakerBit board.

The MakerBit Media Linker app is the 3rd part, and interconnects digital media on a Chromebook, Mac or  Windows device running the Chrome browser, with a physical project.
