Educate yourself about electronics and programming in a fun and interesting way to create games and apps of your own design. No prior knowledge is needed. Tools and batteries are included, too. Just requires use of your own PC to code in Arduino, CircuitBlocks, or Python. The software is open source with all the necessary components and drivers installed.
Includes main circuit, acrylic casing, USB soldering iron with stand, solder wire, screwdriver, full color LCD display, microUSB cable for programming, AAA batteries and misl. components. Online tutorial walks you through the assembly including how to solder. For ages 9+.
Nibble is based on ESP8266 – a microcontroller used on various Arduino development boards. Therefore, it can be programmed in Arduino IDE (based on C/C++) – the most popular programming environment for makers.
You can code games for your Nibble in CircuitBlocks code editor similar to Scratch or Code.org that makes it easy for beginners to get into embedded programming.
CircuitBlocks is open source software that automatically makes sure all the necessary components and drivers are installed. There’s no need for drivers, libraries, toolchain setups, etc.
Make sure you have all of the tools you need to complete your project with the Electronics Tool Pack (#315723). Included are a soldering iron, diagonal cutter pliers and everything else you’ll need for this project.
Both ByteBoi and Nibble will leave you with a cool, handheld game console you built yourself, but ByteBoi takes it to the next level in both tech and age level! BytoBoi comes equipped with an integrated ESP32 dual-core CPU, a larger, full-color LCD screen and a rechargeable Li-Po battery. It also has Bluetooth capablities in addition to connecting to Wi-Fi! Even pair it with Wheelson - Build & Code Your Own AI Self-Driving Car (#3157586) as a perfect remote!
