BBC micro:bit is a small board computer for kids.  Today I'd like to introduce two programs that communicate between a micro:bit and a PC.


The micro:bit side program is thermometer which is programed with JavaScript Blocks Editor.  This program shows temperature at A button clicked and sends temperature to serial port when the temperature changed.




The PC side program is which receives temperature from serial port and shows it graphically.  The picture below shows Device Manager, and chibi:bit (a micro:bit compatible board).

Before running, please check the port number in Ports (COM & LPT) such like COM3 with Device Manager.  And modify line 88 of  Then push reset button and push A button of micro:bit.


Have fun with Small Basic and micro:bit!
