Do you feel like you just don't have a CLUE? Well, we can help with that - get an Adafruit CLUE by picking up this sensor-packed development board! It's great for building projects that need a small screen and a lot of sensors. To make it compatible with existing projects, Adadruit made it the same shape and size as the BBC micro:bit, and with the same edge-connector on the bottom with 5 big pads so it will fit into your existing robot kit or 'bit add-on.

While the CLUE looks a bit like a micro:bit it has totally redesigned-from-scratch technology:

Please note that at this time there is no MakeCode or Scratch support for the nRF52840 chipset (of course, we’d love to see MakeCode but there is no ETA when it may be added). While the CLUE is the same outline, and Adafruit did their best to make the edge-connector pins match up, most cases for the micro:bit wont fit the CLUE, and code may not be immediately compatible without adjustment, especially since only Arduino and CircuitPython are supported at this time.

The CLUE is designed for projects that use a ton of sensors - and they're all built in! So you can start exploring your world, measuring, logging and learning. You can transmit data over Bluetooth to a computer or mobile device for data plotting and logging, or save it to the built in storage. Why did they call it CLUE? Check out their post!

Revision history:

  • As of March 13, 2020 Adafruit made some changes from the previous ALPHA version to move the screen slightly so its a little more centered, and some components moved around to account for the screen connector move. The design is otherwise identical to ALPHA (hardware, shape, pinout, etc)
