Hi, today I’d like to introduce how to make a simple thermometer with micro:bit. I used the microbit to get the temperature and control the steering gear. First, let us start with the design part, and then we will enter the programming part.
Many countries have begun to popularize this micro:bit in recent years. It was quiet from the beginning to later as a representative of open-source hardware in the market.

The breathing light means that the light changes gradually from bright to dark under the control of a micro:bit, and it feels like a person is breathing. It is widely used in mobile phones and has become one of the selling points of new mobile phones of major brands, acting as a notification reminder. First look at the effect:
It might be awkward for us to directly say “I love you” to our loved ones in Chinese culture, if you have a micro:bit in hand, how could we use it to express our love? Now I am gonna make a heart-beating icon in the micro:bit display as below:
