The Scratch Bit will be a Scratch Extension in the near future. It is a tiny, circle-shaped device with 4 lights and a button.[1] They were first previewed at Scratch Day @ MIT 2018.[citation needed]


The Scratch Bit has 13 blocks, 6 hat, 3 boolean and 4 reporters.[2] They are pictured below:

  • Accelerometer: Changes spin speed, movement speed and triggers jump block.

Example Uses

In the photo at the top of the page, there are cases. Some cases have clips on them, while others have a rubber thing that lets you use the Scratch Bit like a joystick.[problematic]


The blocks can be previewed online here. The original concept and blocks can be viewed here.
