Research and Develop the Future of Technology
Google Project Bloks is reshaping the way we see physical programming and provides insight on how to build skills in hardware production. It works as as open source platform for designers and researchers to communicate and share ideas.
Check out a photo from Google Project Bloks of the Base Board they plan to use.
The project is still in active research, but IDEO’s Coding Kit will be available for kids to play with at the Exploratorium in San Francisco, CA and at the Science Museum in London, UK. The website notes that the Coding Kit is not in commercial use yet.
Researchers, educators and engineers can sign up for updates on Project Bloks via the main website.
