Get started with Wi-Fi based IoT on your BBC micro:bit

Get started with Wi-Fi based IoT on your BBC micro:bit

Get started with Wi-Fi based IoT on your BBC micro:bit. Share 2-way data with an IoT Platform using the simple XinaBox IoT starter kit.

Since its conception the BBC micro:bit has flirted with Wi-Fi - some of the early concepts even included Wi-Fi on the board. In the end they went with BLE, which is an amazing feature that has served micro:bit and the community with distinction.

But its not Wi-Fi.

Over the years there have been attempts to emulate IoT on the micro:bit, and there are a few products that offer a Wi-Fi based IoT solution. But they are typically expensive, a bit hacky and not well supported or aimed at educators.

All that is about to change!
