PocketLab let's you write Scratch programs that talk to the outside world. This guide will help you get started connecting your PocketLab to MIT Media Lab's Scratch software. With PocketLab and Scratch you can read real time sensor data in Scratch and write programs that interact with the outside world.
Follow these steps to get started with the PocketLab - Scratch integration:
