Ed Baafi has been working up Modkit, a great new interface that combines the language Scratch with the ability to write programs for the Arduino. Like Scratch, Modkit provides the user with clickable, expandable code blocks. When you have the program the way you want it, you send it down to your Arduino to test it out. All those fussy semicolons and syntax are handled automatically; no typing required.
Ed will be on-hand to demonstrate Modkit at the Cambridge Mini Maker Faire this Saturday, April 24th from 12-4. This Mini Maker Faire is part of the opening events of The Cambridge Science Festival. Look for us under the tent on the tennis courts next to the Cambridge Public Library.
