Of course not and I didn’t take it that way. (At least I hope that’s what came over the wire. . .)
Some people look at things like the micro:bit and dismiss them as toys, not worthy of a second glance. In fact, when the Raspberry Pi was in the planning stages - and during the initial release of the “A” and “B” models - it was dismissed as a wannabe punter toy.
R-O-N-G - wrong!
Even the initial Pi’s were outstanding and there was a lot of BBQ’d crow eaten by all the nay-sayers.
I’m not fussing at you per se, I just chuckle at people who dismiss things like this as trivial.
When I bought my GoPiGo-3, I wondered how long it would keep my interest before I exhausted its capabilities - was I spending $200+ smackers on an expensive toy that would last a week before I got bored with it?
I’m up to my eyeballs in “projects” and helping with various development efforts, and I’ve barely scratched the surface. . . The capabilities and interesting projects I can do with my 'bot will likely outlive me.
When I finally get to dig into the GiggleBot, I am sure that the same thing will happen - it will be much more interesting and involved than first glance.
