Microbit is a micro-controller which has built in sensors and LEDs. You can program it to interact with the world, through sending electrical signals to lights, buzzers, motors and more. It is programmed with a simple drag and drop interface. You can learn how to program it through the online simulator and then later download the file to your microbit once you buy one.
