The Minibit is the younger sibling of the popular and well-loved Bit:Bot. It comes ready-built (wheels need pushing on, and the pen holder top part can be screwed on if required).

A Makecode extension is available - just search for Minibit in the Advanced/Extensions tab. Blocks available for driving the motors, LEDs and optional ultrasonic sensor and line follower module.

Available singly or in packs of 10 at a great discount

Check out these features:
  • 2 micro-metal gear motors. Both fully controllable in software, for both speed (0 to 100%) and direction (forward or reverse)
  • Fully enclosed gearboxes to minimise the ingress of dust and fluff
  • Wheels with rubber tyres for maximum grip
  • Metal ball front caster
  • 4 "Smart RGB" LEDs along the front. Select any colour for any pixel, produce stunning lighting effects as your Minibit moves around
  • Integrated pen holder sits directly between the wheels for best operation. Designed for Sharpie felt tips but any pen with 10mm end shaft will fit
  • Powered from integrated 3xAA battery holder with on/off switch and blue indicator LED
