The Micro:bit will be a Scratch Extension in Scratch 3.0. It is a small circuit board with lights, buttons, and tilt/movement sensors.
The Micro:bit extension has 12 blocks, 6 hat, 4 stack, 1 boolean and 1 reporter. They are pictured below:
The Micro:bit has the following features:
- Tilt/Movement Sensor: Changes the tilt values and triggers jumped and shaken events.
- 5x5 Display: A 5x5 grid of lights that can show text and small images.
- Buttons: Can be pressed to trigger the button pressed hat. For some reason, there is no Boolean block for this.
- Pins: Three pins let you connect other things.
The blocks can be previewed online here.
