Last week, we were excited to be one of the three partners of the BBC showcasing the BBC micro:bit at the BETT Show 2016. Geoff, one of our directors gave a talk about the use of the BBC micro:bit with external accessories.

We were amazed at the amount of interaction from everyone who visited us in the STEAM village. Our hands-on BBC micro:bit powered crane and line-following buggy even attracted the attention of Sangho Jo - President for Samsung UK & Ireland!

We were also hugely excited to announce the launch of BBC micro:bit accessories. You can see the details of these products here.

There were some other really interesting highlights including an LED dress made from over 4000 LEDs!

By far, the star attraction was the 1,000 BBC micro:bit matrix display. We came up with the design of the display which proved to be very popular! You can read all about how it was made here.
