In October 2020, The Micro:bit Educational Foundation announced the new BBC micro:bit with all the features of the original, and with the addition of a microphone, speaker and touch sensitive logo. The micro:bit V2 uses the nRF52833 SoC and opens up a whole new range of opportunities for students around the world.
In this webinar, Jonny Austin, CTO of The Micro:bit Educational Foundation (seconded from Arm) will talk about the features of the new device and how they have been exposed in easy to use, web-based editors. We’ll look at the micro:bit’s microphone, unique, cute sounds and also some of the capabilities of the hardware like keyword recognition, that have been exploited by partners.
