XinaBox

Product Description

This add-on kit for your micro:bit will supercharge your micro:bit. Kit includes a light (Lux / UV) and weather sensor, a servo driver for home automation and a 64x128 OLED display, plus a battery pack for portability

The XinaBox STEM micro:bit Kit (XK04) is a great way to upgrade your BBC micro:bit and unlock some exciting opportunities for learning and fun. Build and code environmental sensors and use the OLED display for messages and diagnostics. The servo motor can be used in automation projects or go portable with the intelligent battery pack. And the IM01 interface is the basis of a powerful and unique data logging system.

In the box you will find two xChip sensors: one for UVA, UVB and light, and the other for temperature, humidity and atmospheric pressure. You will also find a mini-OLED display, a dual AA battery power pack, a servo driver, connectors, plus a micro:bit interface.

See our XK04 STEM micro:bit Kit Resources page for ideas, projects, how-to guides, hints / tips and everything else you need to get the most out of this kit.
