The Microbit has Bluetooth Smart.
Will it talk to the Zero W?

Bunch of Microbit robots controlled by a Pi3?
It has 3 PWM outputs etc.
Manuals written for kids, had to dig deep for the technical stuff ;)

I see no reason that it won't connect to ultibo over ble.

Can it be reprogrammed to implement ultibo?

Cortex M0, there is a FPC embedded version that does Cortex chips.
Need to get past the kiddie stuff to get real specs ;)

But as is, it would make a BLE thingy for Ultibo BLE testing.
BLE tilt control joystick for Ultibo Zero robot.
Microbit BLE flocking bot controlled by Pi3B+.

Give me a few minutes, I could think of a few more things :lol:

Adafruit shows how to use Arduino on Microbit
https://learn.adafruit.com/use-micro-bit-with-arduino

Lots of examples, makes BLE look easy ;)

I need at least two as robot controllers for mini robot wars, might get the kid away from Youtube then.
