Re: Scratch 2.0 and the internet

Just noticed that Snap! (formerly BYOB) http://byob.eecs.berkeley.edu/ is now in beta and looks pretty usable (at least on desktop PC in Chrome). Latest code is in http://snap.berkeley.edu/snapsource/snap.zip (also downloadable when clicking Snap! icon in top left corner) and can be run locally in b...

Or you can use PICAXE chip, they start below £2 and you just need two resistorts and RS-232 serial cable to program it in BASIC http://www.picaxe.com/Hardware/PICAXE-Chips/

Re: Scratch 2.0 and the internet

BTW, there is Scratch fork called BYOB http://byob.berkeley.edu/ (which BTW adds a possibility to make your own blocks from other Scratch blocks = make procedures with parameters and return values - this is missing in original Scratch) and their upcoming version called SNAP is planned to be in HTML.
