- Hardware/software interfacing is taught: Connecting physical motions sensed by the device to changes in the computer are the core of the first lesson.

- The cartoonish content delivery and earning of badges make the learning process friendly.

- JavaScript equivalent of the visual programming language is available.

- Setting up both hardware and software was easy.
