You can make the micro:bit do all these things without worrying about complicated code.

You decide on inputs and outputs, Mr Bit offers you choices and uses them to build a program script. You can run the script to see how it works and edit it if it needs adjusting. Then, at the touch of a button, Mr Bit controls the BBC micro:bit via super-fast Bluetooth wireless without the need of connecting wires.
