SparkFun Micro:Arcade Kit

Do you love games? Do you love writing games, building games and, yes, even building game consoles? Then the SparkFun Micro:Arcade Kit for the micro:bit is what you will want! The kit includes the gamer:bit carrier board, which gives you access to a number of pins in the form of buttons laid out in a similar form factor to the classic Nintendo NES controller. With the micro:arcade kit you will be able to turn a classic controller into an arcade cabinet by connecting just a few buttons and switches.

The micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that lets you get creative with digital technology. Between the micro:bit and our shield-like bit boards you can do almost anything while coding, customizing and controlling your micro:bit from almost anywhere! You can use your micro:bit for all sorts of unique creations, from robots to musical instruments and more.

Inside each micro:arcade kit you will find all the components required to build your micro:bit into a full-fledged game system; the only parts not included are two AA batteries and the micro:bit itself. Simply add your own micro:bit to the provided gamer:bit, assemble the kit, and you will be ready to start playing. The SparkFun micro:arcade kit is a great way to build the arcade setup you’ve always wanted!
