That's what I'm talking about Cortex-M baby! :)
 
"The BBC has revealed the final design of its Micro:Bit computer in a launch event in London.  The single-board computing device, unveiled back in March, will be given free to every child starting secondary school in the UK this autumn as part of the corporation’s Make It Digital initiative.
[...]
The Micro:Bit has changed significantly since it was announced: the device now has a friendly rectangular shape, designed by Shoreditch hardware startup Tech Will Save Us. The board now houses an ARM Cortex M-O processor and an accelerometer and magnetometer, as well as the prexisting 5x5 LED matrix display and two face buttons. It will also offer Bluetooth LE capability, USB, and a combined croc-clip/edge connector, which will allow children to connect the Micro:Bit to similar boards such as Arduino and Raspberry Pi. The coin cell has also been swapped for a AAA battery pack for use when untethered from a PC.
 
The board will be accompanied with an online coding environment that will include Blockly, Python, and Microsoft's TouchDevelop platform; the BBC has partnered with a number of education startups including CodeClub, Coder Dojo and Decoded to provide educational support for the device. Samsung is also working on a mobile app to flash the device over Bluetooth."
The BBC confirms launch details of its Micro:Bit computer, which will be given free to every year 7 student in the UK this autumn

Seeing they are micros, I sure as heck hope so. If not, the nucleus boards are a bargain. :) I've got a video on them on the queue already.

This one’s crazy… literally one electronic device is talking to another. In spoken English. And it works. We’ve covered several hacks for the Amazon Echo, but some might be surprised to learn that there is another piece of interesting hardware that comes…

Software Desperado
Introduction
I'm an incredibly handsome software engineer.

Open-source software/hardware, low-level game development, embedded systems, electronics, kernel hacking and warranty voiding are just some of my many passions.

I also draw comics in my spare time; they aren't very popular.
