Following on from the arrival of the new Pimoroni noise:bit at Adafruit, specially designed for the BBC Micro:bit mini PC. Adafruit has now announced the arrival of the Pimoroni enviro:bit for micro:bit offering a wide variety of different sensors. Enabling users to graph or visualise weather readings, detect colours and more. Adafruit explains a little more about the Pimoroni enviro:bit add-on board.
“This add-on board is jam-packed with all the sensors you want to graph or visualize your weather readings! With the TCS3472 sensor, detecting colors and measuring light are easy-peasy-lemon-squeeze. The BME280 lets you measure temperature, air pressure, and humidity, and the MEMS microphone detects sound! All you have to do is slide the enviro:bit into the micro:bit slot. If you’re using MakeCode, install the enviro:bit package, and you’re good to go! Feeling a little more advanced or wanting to dip your toes in MicroPython?”

Arrives fully-assembled and ready to use
BME280 temperature, pressure, and humidity sensor
TCS3472 light and color sensor
