The BBC showed off the final build of its Micro:bit system board on Tuesday, as the corporation tries to get UK school kids into coding.
The board will land in the palms of school kids for free this September, and is part of the BBC's Make It Digital initiative to inspire digital creativity in young people across the UK.
It has been launched in partnership with a bunch of influential companies, from ARM and Samsung to Barclays and Microsoft.
After the announcement, the BBC hosted a demonstration of the Micro:bit integrated into a variety of projects that use sensors and other components to solve problems.
Some of the highlights included a guitar built from cardboard around the Micro:bit that uses sensors and speakers and gets louder the harder you shake it, a sensor that detects when a plant's soil is dry and initiates watering, a Scalextric-style app-powered car racing game, and a football score board.
We snapped some photos of these projects in action, as you can see below.
The Micro:bit project builds on the legacy of the seminal BBC Micro, which was put into the majority of schools in the 1980s and was paramount in the careers of many of today's technology pioneers.
The BBC said that the Micro:bit is 18 times faster than the original BBC Micro and 617 times lighter. The BBC hopes the Micro:bit will expand children's conception of what a computer can be by showing how it works and how the components fit together.
The BBC will tie the initiative in with programmes such as Children in Need and EastEnders.
The BBC and its partners hope to enable children to begin working on coding and computer maker projects at a young age and thus inspire them to become the software engineers and technology leaders of the future.
Micro:bit was unveiled as a prototype in March, but today's official launch showed off the board's final design and specifications.
These include a 4x5cm board with 25 red LEDs, two programmable buttons, an accelerometer, a built-in magnetometer to work as a compass and determine location, Bluetooth Smart connectivity, and five I/O rings to connect to devices or sensors using crocodile clips or 4mm banana plugs.
