The cyber:bot board

The cyber:bot board is very similar to the BASIC Stamp Board of Education or Board of Education Shield for Arduino.  It fits on top of the same small robot chassis.  It has 3-pin headers with selective voltage, and a 3-position switch for powering the breadboard circuits with or without powering the servos.

What is new is that this robot has more than one "brain."  Your Python programs for a micro:bit mounted on the cyber:bot board will communicate with a  pre-programmed Propeller multicore microcontroller "assistant" on the bottom of the board.  The Propeller automatically controls the servo motors, interacts with sensor circuits, and replies back with data. 

For a more complete reference, see the cyber:bot board guide.
