REKA:BIT – Simplifying Robotics with micro:bit
REKA:BIT is the little sibling of EDU:BIT, which was 575% funded on KICKSTARTER on Oct 22, 2020.
With the fundamental concepts acquired from EDU:BIT’s 10+1 hands-on lessons, one is able to bring it further to apply the knowledge in creating more fun applications and even solving real-life problems with this micro:bit expansion board. Its much smaller board size is perfect for building innovation projects for schools and competitions, or even just to tame your cravings for DIY and making.

REKA:BIT possesses a lot of indicator LEDs to assist your coding and troubleshooting. It covers the IO pins connected to all six Grove ports and DC motor outputs from the co-processor. One is able to check his/her program and circuit connection easily by monitoring these LEDs.
Besides, REKA:BIT also has power on/off indicator, undervoltage and overvoltage LEDs built-in to give appropriate warnings should there be any problem with the power input.
REKA:BIT features a co-processor to handle multi-tasking more efficiently. Playing music while controlling up to 4x servo motors and 2x DC motors, animating micro:bit LED matrix and even lighting up RGB LEDs in different colors, all at the same time, is not a problem for REKA:BIT.
