On a whim I nipped out and bought the only BBC micro:bit in stock at PB Tech in New Plymouth as I was curious to have a play and see where it might fit in between Raspberry Pi’s and Arduino’s for teaching kids.
I thought turning it into a simple digital watch would be a fun place to start learning so, below is the result.
The virtual micro:bits, below, are interactive so click on the ‘shake’ button to simulate shaking it in real life to display the time.
The code can also be found in my Github repo, here. It will be the most recent version if I have made changes and haven’t had time, or have forgotten, to update this post 🙂
