With Insight Mr Bit you can create simple programs in plain English to control the BBC micro:bit to do lots of useful things:
• Show images, animations, messages and graphs
• Control external devices connected to the micro:bit
• Design and play games
• Make measurements and do calculations
• Compose and play musical tunes
You can make the micro:bit do all these things without worrying about complicated code.
You decide on inputs and outputs, Mr Bit offers you choices and uses them to build a program script. You can run the script to see how it works and edit it if it needs adjusting. Then, at the touch of a button, Mr Bit controls the BBC micro:bit via super-fast Bluetooth wireless without the need of connecting wires. In Control mode the iPad screen simultaneously shows how your program is working in the micro:bit. With Transfer mode you can send the program code to the micro:bit allowing it to run independently.
