bitty blue

Bitty Blue provides a collection of fun things to do with a BBC micro:bit (or compatible device) and Bluetooth. Play with 3D "PolySquiggles", use your micro:bit as a compass, have fun with the micro:bit's buttons, design patterns and send them or text to the micro:bit LED display. You can also monitor the temperature and get alerted if it gets too cold or too hot or just send messages from your micro:bit to your phone to be displayed. Lots of fun and educational too!

This application is available for iOS and Android smartphones.

Calibrating the micro:bit magnetometer

Note that with the standard bitty data logger installed on your micro:bit, you will need to calibrate the internal ditigal compass whenever your micro:bit starts. Follow the on-display instructions.
