Community standards for a LEGO kit?

I’m not sure what you mean by a LEGO kit?

We have been tinkering with snap-together controls over here.

Or do you mean LabView style programming, data flow?  

Or do you mean 3D construction?  

Or do you mean a library to interface with Mindstorms EV3?  

(If one of those show up on my doorstep, that might happen.)

I've known many designers who dabble in programming who would find such a thing very useful for prototyping UI/UX. The few times I've shown LIveCode to kids, the drag-and-drop stuff is a nice place to start.
