Let me introduce to you Algobrix, the new way to learn coding. It is comprised out of 2 parts, the AlgoBrain - which is a 328pb with some tons of goodies on one board, and set of Function cubes (pic16 family inside) that tells it what and how to do things. We lunched our kick-starter yesterday and got fully funded in less then 24hrs ... please check it out at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/543628386/algobrix-the-ultimate-coding-learning-game?ref=discovery
What a cool idea! this will be perfect for my younger students but is it possible to reprogram it using the arduino environment for a more advanced lessons?
Yes its is. We will supply a board manager, the 328pb comes with an arduino IDE compatible boot loader. you can see this video that shows the process. We will also (once the product is out) supply the pinout and needed libraries.
