Developing on Project Bloks

I came across this new interesting project of Google called 'Bloks'. From the looks of it, I find it similar with the software platforms that aims to teach programming easier without having to do coding. For instance, the Scratch project developed by MIT. The difference however is that Google's 'Blok' project is not virtual since you can literally touch, feel, hear, and see the components and its output. Moreover, you perform the logic by simply putting pieces together by hand similar on how we do it on Lego.

From the looks of it, it seems like there are only a few 'Bloks' developed, however I am hoping that this would mature that hopefully it can be used for advanced development aimed to real world applications. As of the moment, it looks like it aims to teach people how to do programs as a physical manifestation.
