I made this quick micro:bit demo for an university applicant visit day. It’s basically a very cheap pedometer, for anyone who balks at the price (and functionality) of a Fitbit.

As far as further development, I did once entertain the idea of trying to store a small amount of Bitcoin on the micro:bit, selling the micro:bit for slightly above the worth of the Bitcoin at the time of sale and having the micro:bit transfer portions of its coin over to the user as they achieved daily step goals. It’s not hard to see why that never came to fruition.
