The Pico:ed Ring:bit is a small DIY smart robot car based on the Pico:ed V2 (RP2040) and Ring:bit robot chassis.
It can be easily programmed to run autonomously, and even create rainbow beacons of light! The robot supports multiple programming methods, such as Python, C++ and Micro block, and has a detailed online user guide including a number of projects to learn with and build upon.
The kit comes with a Pico:ed board, Ring:bit power board, Expansion adapter board (with 2x RGB LEDs), robot chassis parts & wheels, servos, castor wheel, USB cable, jumper wires, fixings, screwdriver and printed manual - all in a handy reusable box.
The robot is powered from the Ring:bit board - just add three 1.5V alkaline AAA batteries and you're ready to roll - easy, simple and safe!
We also stock a version of this kit for the BBC micro:bit here!
