Work#290 MicroSquad - Connecting Microbit to the Web
The BBC Microbit is a great educational tool, simple to learn and use, but limited by design in resources. Connecting Microbits to web pages can prove complicated.
MicroSquad is an open-source gateway that connects Microbits to the "Internet of Things" (via the standard MQTT protocol) via their on-board radio module.
Actions and data requests can be sent to individual Microbits or groups of Microbits to support interactive group activities, such as group decision processes (vote), sentiment collection (likes, applause, happy / unhappy) or interactive team games (using buttons or the on-board compass or accelerometer for control).
