Octopus Electronic Bricks, you can use them to build electronics projects just as easily as piling bricks.

By using Octopus electronic bricks, you can connect Arduino/Freaduino compatible boards easily with various digital, analog and I2C/Uart interfaces or you can connect to a micro:bit with the Octopus:bit. These breadboard-less firm connections are ready to be used with extensive modules like potentiometers, sensors, relays, servos and even buttons: just plug and play.

This is the adjustable sensitivity Analog Photocell Brick. It allows you to adjust sensitivity of an analog Photocel to get a digital signal or set a trigger value.

Photocells are sensors that allow you to detect light. They are small, inexpensive, low-power, easy to use and don’t wear out. For that reason they often appear in toys, gadgets and appliances. They are often referred to as CdS cells (they are made of Cadmium-Sulfide), light-dependent resistors (LDR), and photoresistors.

News: All of the Octopus bricks support Scratch programming. The guide is available here.
