Edward writes in to share the new progress of Modkit

If you’ve been following the Modkit project, this screenshot tells a lot. Did you think we decided to show the Seeeduino just because of it’s festive red color? Maybe a little, but the Seeduino represents Modkit’s move to support more third party boards. Oh, but that’s a Seeeduino Mega? Right.. Modkit will now have support for the Mega line of Arduino compatibles. You might also notice the new drag-and-drop hardware components. We completely redesigned the hardware drag-and-drop to make it easier to add more components. Oh and if you’re really paying attention, you’ll notice that we haven’t just added things, we’ve taken something away: the serial port drop-down menu. I wonder what that’s about?


Basically, Modkit is an in-browser graphical programming environment for microcontrollers. Modkit allows you to program Arduino and Compatible hardware using simple graphical blocks and/or traditional text code. Modkit’s graphical blocks are heavily inspired by the Scratch programming environment developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab. Go to Modkit website for more information.
