With this, the latest version of our Tipper Truck add-on for :MOVE mini MK2 for the BBC microbit, everyone's favourite little programmable robot buggy just got much better. Robots often do more than just :MOVE from A to B, and with this add-on so can :MOVE mini.

Although this add on has been designed to work with :MOVE mini MK2 it can also be fitted to the original :MOVE mini. We have produced two sets of build instructions as there is a slightly different procedure for each. The MK1 and MK2 build instructions can both be found in the resources section below.

Previously on :MOVE mini, we; drew shapes, controlled it via bluetooth, controlled it with a second microbit, and we also coded a variety of light shows. Now, it can totally carry and dump stuff too!

This self assembly Tipper Truck add-on kit is made from the same materials as :MOVE mini, designed in keeping with the :MOVE mini aesthetic, and also comes with the servo required to move the Tipper Truck trailer up and down.

There is a very simple Servo:Lite board hack that enables the control of the third servo. Once the kit is fully assembled, the Tipper Truck can be coded with the Microsoft MakeCode Editor.

  • When attached to :MOVE mini this kit offers a fun introduction to the world of DIY robotics.
  • Code it with the Microsoft MakeCode Editor.
  • Use in conjunction with an App and control it over Bluetooth.
  • Use the radio function and a second microbit as a controller.
