    Hello Luigi, 

    Yes, you are right, the estimated date is February.

    We have just tested it last week on the Nurburg Toy Fair. 

    Soon we will release more information about it! 

    Stay Tuned! 

    Best wishes,

    Hi guys,

    While we're waiting for the official swift/playgrounds, you can checkout/use the framework I wrote for swift:

    It's an early version that supports just the basic commands - driving and stopping (with channel, power, direction), but I'll update it whenever I can. You can download the framework and a working example from my GitHub: https://github.com/BarakRL/SBrick-iOS

    Demo:

    Hi Barak,

    I just found SBrick looking for ways to learn to program swift with the help of robotics.

    I am interested in the lessons and activities product for swift, but I cant find any further info on it.

    As per the time sheet it should be ready.

    Is there this somthing that being planed to be finalized this any time soon do you have an estimate as to when you it will be ready?

    Other than the github hub link is there anything else curently available?

    Dear Daniel, 

    Thank you for your question. 

    The Swift lessons are really really close. We will release them within 2-3 weeks. 

    We have some delay, that is true, but we are working on making them available as soon as possible. 

    We ask for your patience. :) 

    Have a nice day,

    Dear Daniel, 

    Sorry for the late reply. 

    At the moment we cannot share the expected kits yet, but stay tuned, cause it nearby! :) 

    As soon as we released them you will see which one is the most interesting for you, and then you can choose. 

    Maybe this is the easiest way. 

    If you need any further help, just let us know!

    Have a nice day,

    You keep asking for our patience and, every time, you fail to meet the dates when you said things woud be ready. I have been waiting months for:

    1. Scratch lesson plans

    2. Swift Playgrounds support

    3. Example model builds for the Lego Fire Plane set

    4. Scratch support for Sbrick+ for PCs that do not have factory Windows 10

     

    You have lost a lot of credibility and goodwill

    Hi,

    Any update on the Playgrounds support? Just showing my continued interest. Its the best way for my son to learn to code as he spends most of his time in Lego.

    Dear Luigi, 

    Our developers are worked on the NXT/EV3 adapter that we released a few days ago. 

    After they got back, we will share some news about the Swift Playground. 

    I hope this will help you, 

    Have a nice day,

    We are still waiting for:

    1. Scratch lesson plans

    2. Swift Playgrounds support

    3. Example model builds for the Lego Fire Plane set

    4. Scratch support for Sbrick+ for PCs that do not have factory Windows 10

     

    We can't even use S2Bot as Revolution Education (who write S2Bot say that the SBrick+ BLE protocol doesn't work as advertised.

    The SBrick+ that I bought for my son's Christmas is still absolutely useless to us.
