It has two modes of operation: Stage Mode, in which you can work on your project in real-time, and Upload Mode, in which you can write a program, upload it to your hardware, and then control it without having to keep it connected to your computer. 🤝 Scratch vs PictoBlox Unlike Scratch, PictoBlox has advanced hardware interaction capabilities.

@abhishr215 This sounds great. I'm surprised it's free though, aren't there hardware components?

I’ve used other such software before but they didn’t have dedicated blocks for Arduino and other hardware. So, this one looks promising.
@ravinder_bidhan Download it and let the promises come true ;) Let me know how it turns out for you :)
