Create devices, without tools, soldering, wiring, breadboarding, or electronics knowledge.
The micro:bit slides easily into the supplied bridge (the IM01 xChip), then add W-Fi by clipping the CW01 Wifi Core xChip onto the bridge using one of the connectors provided. Power it up by plugging a USB cable into the IM01 - the instrument can be built in seconds and no hardware knowledge is requires. It’s just as easy to code it too: load the CW01 extension into MakeCode and use block coding to turn your XK05 micro:bit IoT Kit + micro:bit into a smart IoT edge device.
The IM01 micro:bit interface also has a slot on the back where you can add a microSD card. Connect your micro:bit to the IM01 and flash the supplied code to create a powerful data logger that can record .csv files several gigabytes large, bringing big-data potential to the micro:bit. Unlock data science experimentation with this cool feature.
And there is even a green / blue LED on the IM01 that you can control using the MakeCode IM01 extension.
Note: BBC micro:bit and microSD card not included in the XK05 kit

XinaBox is pronounced as X-in-a-Box!
The XinaBox range currently includes over 80 sensors, bridges, cores, interfaces and other types of peripherals, and it is growing all the time. These ‘xChips’ will help you to super-charge your BBC micro:bit:

The connection - plug and play, no wire
Build simple and complex circuits quickly and easily. The modular system allows you to connect xChips like building blocks - anyone can build a circuit in seconds, with no need for soldering irons, breadboards or consumables. And when you are done, disassemble the circuit and start again! It takes seconds when you know how.
