A new robot has been created powered by the awesome BBC micro:bit mini PC providing a sensor controlled micro:bit robot that can be programmed and includes movable arms and legs. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the PLEN:bit humanoid robot which has been designed to enable anyone to easily program. “Beginner or advanced, regardless of ability, anyone can freely and easily program the sensors and LEDs in the micro:bit to create your robot’s motions and reactions.” The PLEN:bit has both a distance sensor and sound sensor that can be used even to navigate a maze.
