Mind Render is a programming tool that allows anyone to create full-fledged 3D programs.

Easy, but in-depth

Just like Scratch, the program is created by combining blocks, so it is easy to start off with. Also, it has scientific elements such as physics engine and 3D, so it provokes to think more in-depth.

Rich and fun

The running environment is 3D and colorful, definitely richer than Scratch. You can fly drones, drive on a race track, and create various fun programs.

Next Stage beyond Scratch with 3D and VR

You can immediately view your program you created in VR mode. Being able to enjoy your program which is running in VR mode is an experience out of t
