Hi

Unfortunately not, Edison is running a small 8 bit micro that is not powerful enough to run MicroPython

Our Python-like language, EdPy, is close, but it is “Python-like” because it needs to be compiled before being downloaded to Edison

Thanks, I appreciate your fast  response.  

 Please consider adding just a few more things. 

 Adding Python’s random function would let me do a few cool things.

random.randint(1,10)

Could be:

Ed.Random(1,10)

 I’m working on some nice tutorials for Edison and I’m exploring combining micro:bit with Edison.

 It sure is a lot of fun,  thanks for creating Edison. 

I’m only interested in the coding of Edison,  and I think once kids understand concepts they  should consider coding. 

 I’m going to put a lot of  emphasis on best practises for Python, as it’s never too early to learn those. 

Thanks 

Rob

Thanks for the suggestion!

I’ve added it to our suggestions list to be reviewed at a later date

We’d love to see what you come up with!

Heads up

The Australian Federal Parliament has passed a law that extends goods and services tax (GST) to low value imports of physical goods imported by consumers from 1 July 2018.

This means that all customers purchasing Edison robots and accessories with an Australian shipping address must now pay GST. The GST will be automatically added to your purchase and show as a line item on your invoice.

We've detected that you are in Australia, so we wanted to let you know that we have changed your settings to view our Australian site, which displays GST inclusive pricing.

OK got it!    Take me to the GLOBAL SITE instead
