micro:bit Ring:bit Car
The Ring:bit Car is a programmable smart car for the BBC micro:bit, based on the ElecFreaks ring:bit breakout board (available for sale separately). This DIY car comes with:
- (Optional) BBC micro:bit
- Ring:bit breakout board
- Two servo motors
- Chassis acrylic pieces
- Easy-to-use rivets
To get started with the ring:bit, simply build it, and program it in MakeCode with our custom libraries (written by ElecFreaks, and published by Tinkercademy): under the "Advanced" drawer, select "Add Package", search for "ring:bit", and add the package.
From here, it's easy to code the ring:bit with car functionality:
- Set up which wheel goes in which pin
- Move forward or backward
- Turn left or right
... and impress (or annoy) all your friends! There's even a pen attachment at the back of the car, which lets you scribble all over the floor (or, perhaps better, a large of paper).
