The cyber:bot board

The cyber:bot board is very similar to the Board of Education or Board of Education Shield.  It fits on top of the same small robot chassis.  It has 3-pin headers with selective voltage, and a 3-position switch for powering the breadboard circuits with or without powering the servos.

What is new is that this robot has more than one "brain."  Your Python programs for a micro:bit mounted on the cyber:bot board will communicate with a  pre-programmed Propeller multicore microcontroller "assistant" on the bottom of the board.  The Propeller automatically controls the servo motors, interacts with sensor circuits, and replies back with data. 

For a more complete reference, see the cyber:bot board guide.
