article, with video:
"The Micro Bit will be a small, wearable device with an LED display that
children can programme in a number of ways. It will be a standalone,
entry-level coding device that allows children to pick it up, plug it into
a computer and start creating with it immediately."
(Standalone, except for the part where it requires a host computer... which
b ythe way could be a Raspberry Pi)
Product partners/champions include Microsoft and the Python Software
The BBC will supply massive audiovisual educational content.
They "anticipate working with a wider network of informal partners to
magnify the educational impact of the project."
Deployment starts this September and when the 1,000,000th is distributed,
production will be halted.
