Sent to me by its previous host, Stewart Watkiss. Haven't flashed the device yet so it looks like the robot controlling hex is still loaded.


Environment setup

Started using upyed and Tom Viner's very convenient upyflashed. The tool was exiting with a trace in the event of no hex files being available, so I opened a PR to make this a bit better.

EDIT: Turns out my "fix" was skipping the sleep step which caused the loop cycles to be a bit too fast. Good thing Tom caught that 😉

It's Xmas

The Micro:bit gets a warm Christmas welcome by some of the other flashing LEDs in our house.
