Geek Speak:

Nibble is based on ESP8266 – a microcontroller used on various Arduino development boards. Therefore, it can be programmed in Arduino IDE (based on C/C++) – the most popular programming environment for makers. You can code games for your Nibble in CircuitBlocks code editor similar to Scratch or that makes it easy for beginners to get into embedded programming.
