Bluetooth Control of a micro:bit and motor using Bitty

Bitty is a suite of software that allows you to use your smartphone as an interface to your micro:bit. The software comes in two parts. A resident program that you download from here as a HEX file and copy onto your micro:bit and an App that you install on your smartphone (search your app store for Bitty Blue.

Here's a video of me using Bitty Blue to turn a MonkMakes Relay for micro:bit on and off and hence control a motor.

The Bitty Blue app has a load of other fun things to do with your micro:bit, so do try them out as well.

Bitty also have a range of other apps for things such as:

  • Turning your micro:bit into a wireless data logger (for which a Sensor for micro:bit might be handy)
  • Bluetooth control of a Kitroniks robot.
  • Controlling lighting
  • An audio prank
  • even a Christmas tree bauble
