Convert to a cyber:bot

What its about

This tutorial shows you how to convert a built Boe-Bot with BS2,  or Shield-Bot robot with Arduino Uno, into a Python-programmable cyber:bot robot with a micro:bit module.  It takes the place of "Build your cyber:bot" in the cyber:bot Tutorial Series.

You will need these items:

You will need to complete the following Prerequisite tutorials before assembly:

This Tutorial is for Board Rev C

  • These instructions are for the cyber:bot board revision C. Open your kit and check your board revision using the images below.
  • If you have a Rev A or B board, follow these instructions instead to build your robot. If you have a Rev C board, stay here. You are in the right place!


After you finish

Once your cyber:bot contstruction is complete, you will be ready to continue with the other tutorials in the cyber:bot Main Lessons.  These use the electronic components in your original robot's kit. If you need replacements, the Small Robot Electronics Pack (#572-28132) is available separately.
