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

Here is a short video 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+R 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.
