The Ring:bit Car (v2) is a small DIY smart car driven by the BBC micro:bit (not included) and Ring:bit board (included)! Play and programming come together with this cute servo-driven robot, which can be programmed with simple drag-and-drop blocks within the MakeCode Editor.
The Ring:bit Car uses the Ring:bit expansion board, which is a simple PCB for the micro:bit. The Ring:bit extends the micro:bit’s 3 GPIO ports and can be loaded with 3x AAA batteries (not included) to drive the car or other components.
The car also includes a special expansion board for adding extensibility, with two Rainbow LEDs and a special expanded port for special expansion module connection.
A basic Ring:bit Car can be easily programmed to run autonomously, with a remote control, and even create rainbow beacons of light! Just add one of the many extensions available and your Ring:bit Car can do even more things like line and light following, obstacle avoiding, drawing and more!
