This is the tiny computer the BBC is giving to a million kids Video Description

The final design has one major change from the prototype shown in March — instead of a slimline watch battery, the device is now powered by two AA batteries. "The initial prototype utilised a smaller battery," a BBC spokesperson explained. "However in reviewing the design and examining the health and safety implications of using small batteries for a young audience, where siblings may be able to access the device, the partnership took the decision to re-engineer this element." The change makes the Micro Bit slightly less portable, and less practical to be used as a wearable device, but should also make it easier for kids to keep it operational.
