The Kitronik ACCESS:bit for BBC micro:bit has been designed to allow for connection to the micro:bit via the supplied M3 countersunk screws or via crocodile clips. Kitronik has also produced a set of custom MakeCode editor blocks that make it possible to simplify the task of coding, thus opening up this activity to younger students.
It includes a switch for turning the integrated 3 x AAA battery supply on and off and also a buzzer for sound. The ACCESS:bit joins the family of transportation/pedestrian crossing micro:bit accessories, that also includes; the STOP:bit and LAMP:bit.
The ACCESS:bit is supplied with a single servo, a barrier, and all of the required fixings. Once the micro:bit has been fitted to the ACCESS:bit its LED matrix is fully visible and therefore can be used to display warning signals, stop/go symbols or as a light sensor for autonomous actions.
Note: The ACCESS:bit does not include a micro:bit. The micro:bit is available separately.
