Most teenagers nowadays like playing video games, in order to make them more intereseted in coding, Kittenbot has developed Meowbit, a handheld game console designed for MakeCode Arcade. Students can use MakeCode Arcade to create their own games and then play them on the Meowbit, allowing everyone to experience game design, truly realizing the concept of STEAM education.
In addition, Meowbit can also act as a control board for robots as it has the same edge connectors as the Micro:bit, making it compatible with Kittenbot’s expansion boards. Thus, the flexibility and possibilities with Meowbit can be further increased with expansion boards!
Meowbit has been officially approved by Microsoft as a recommended board for MakeCode Arcade.¶
