CodeBug is a cute, programmable and wearable device designed to introduce simple programming and electronic concepts to anyone, at any age.
It is easy to program CodeBug using the online interface, which features colourful drag and drop blocks, an in-browser emulator and engaging community features. Create your own games, clothes, robots or whatever other wacky inventions you have in mind!
CodeBug has six electrical legs that can be used with external electronic components such as LEDs and switches. You can connect to the legs with crocclips, bananaplugs or conductive thread. The centre two legs provide power and the other four legs are selected as input or outputs in your code. The state of the inputs can be read, and the outputs turned on or off from statements in your code.
