Doesn't really look like they've done a huge amount other than write a sketch that makes the arduino emulate the Picoboard interface board you can get for Scratch. From what I could see, there's a lot of work still needing to be done to make a proper Scratch interface for the 'duino.

Technically speaking, it can't 'program' an Arduino as you need to upload a sketch to your board in order for it to be recognised by the editor. (This is what is used to emulate the Picoboard.)

At the moment, the editor only supports 6 analog and 2 digital I/O pins. Also, there doesn't seem to have been much effort made to remove functions from the libraries that don't pertain to hardware interfacing, with many of the original Scratch functions still evident.

I know that this is probably still early days with this project and what they've done isn't too bad I suppose, but to make this a serious contender for Modkit, it needs a heck of a lot more spit and polish.

Adafruit makes a nice enclosure. You do need to supply your own display and buttons, but it has mounting points for them.

Oh, it can definitely be hacked.

If the whole house is networked, why bother with using the phone line?  :-?

*sets repeating macro on his G15 keyboard, lines mouse up, starts macro, goes to sleep*

EDIT: 1 hour later and we're in the lead.
