PicoCricket
http://www.picocricket.com/
A PicoCricket is a tiny computer that can make things spin, light up, and play music.
You can plug lights, motors, sensors, and other devices into a PicoCricket, then program them to react, interact, and communicate.
For example, you can make a cat and program it to purr when someone pets it. Or you can make a birthday cake and program it to play a song when someone blows out the candles.
The PicoCricket Kit is similar to the LEGO® MINDSTORMS™ robotics kits. MINDSTORMS is designed especially for making robots, while the PicoCricket Kit is designed for making artistic creations with lights, sound, music, and motion.

Softease Turtle
http://www.textease.com/turtle/
Softease Turtle is a very flexible control program which handles all aspects of turtle graphics. It starts with the simple movement of a single object, and progresses to complex programming and control over multiple objects.
At the simplest level, easy, on screen buttons are used to control the movement of a traditional turtle, optionally leaving a path trail of graphics. This subtly teaches about distances and angles.
Sequences can be pre-set and run as scripts to create repeating patterns. This introduces simple programming and control concepts to students. Embed scripts within other scripts for a powerful, yet simple programming language.
Any Textease object can be named and used as a turtle, whether it is a simple shape, a photograph or clipart. Control as many of these turtles as you wish, to demonstrate more complex programming, provide an interesting multimedia show, or as an ideal way to create animations.
control | technology | Runs independently or fully integrates with Textease Studio | Designed with full network capabilities | Available for Windows, Mac or Acorn |
