PicoBoard: Slider, Light Sensor, Mic, Button, Inputs for Scratch US$44.95

WIG-11888
PicoBoard: Slider, Light Sensor, Mic, Button, Inputs for Scratch


The PicoBoard allows you to create interactions with various sensors. Using the free Scratch programming language developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab, you can create simple interactive programs based on the input from sensors. For example, you can create animated characters that react to light and sound in different ways.

The PicoBoard incorporates a light sensor, a sound sensor, a button and a slider, as well as four additional inputs that can sense electrical resistance via included cables thus you can have your Scratch project react when you touch conductive objects, or you can connect the alligator clips to external sensors.

Designed for educators and beginners, the PicoBoard is a good way to get into the very basics of programming and reading sensors. The board's ATmega328 MCU comes already programmed and ready to use. All you have to do is connect the PicoBoard to your PC via a mini-USB cable and open Scratch.

If you do want to modify the board's function, there are through-hole header pads where you can solder on an AVR ISP connector. The original firmware can be downloaded below.

The PicoBoard is a derivative of the original Scratch Sensor Board developed at MIT. It is manufactured in accordance with the Scratch Sensor Board Design License.
