The Breakout Board is pictured here connected to the micro:bit and several components. This enables the micro:bit to fully utilize all the components found in the micro:bit Tinker Kit.
Overview of the various components:
- ADKeypad (top left) that activates the Octopus LED (bottom middle)
- Soil Moisture Sensor for detecting moisture (left), Crash Sensor (top right) and Motion Sensor (bottom middle), which all display output in the OLED (middle)
