PictoBlox is based on the latest version of Scratch. Therefore, the basic functionality is the same; however, it also has artificial intelligence and machine learning tools and hardware interaction capabilities integrated into its graphical coding interface. You can easily work with development boards like evive, the Arduino Uno, Mega, Nano, and ESP32, control your projects with hardware in real-time, upload code to your robots, and do a lot of other things!
