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."
