What is BlockyTalky?

BlockyTalky is a low-cost, extensible, open source, programmable, networked toolkit for tangible creations. BlockyTalky is currently being developed in the Laboratory for Playful Computation at the Center for Engineering Education and Outreach at Tufts University. BlockyTalky creates an easily-approached environment for programming, robotics, and more. Some features of BlockyTalky include:

  • Inter-unit communication
  • Social media integration (Facebook and more coming soon!)
  • OSC (Open Sound Control) for musical instrument creation
  • Raspberry Pi GPIO control
  • Reading in data from Lego NXT motors and sensors (via the BrickPi shield)
