The BBC showed off the final design for its micro:bit computer this week. The pint-sized computer, which has a Raspberry Pi feel, will be given out to one million schoolchildren in the UK in October of this year, giving them the opportunity to learn how to code at an early age.
Mind-controlled prosthetics, drones and exoskeletons

the technology? The BBC's "Mind Control TV" prototype hints at a future
where couch potatoes need not even lift the remote. Users can open an
app and select a program to watch.
