Neuron: programmable build module platform, professor build small tools.
Makeblock launches its latest product-neuron, a STEM education e-building platform. When released, it contains more than 30 modules, including input, output, communication, power and control modules, and more production. Neuron provides intuitive, process-based programming and rich features and features designed to help users turn their unlimited ideas into reality.
There are four sets of neurons that can be pre-ordered via Kickstarter, starting with Early Bird explorers, light guides, science LABS and all-in-one, at $39. Each kit contains a different set of theme modules for educators, children, manufacturers and enthusiasts.
Main features of neurons:
Plug and play: play with or without software.
Unique modules: light sensors, knobs and other standard modules with unique modules, such as cold cathode, MP3, 2.4G and camera modules, to expand out-of-the-box creation opportunities.
Durable and simple: children, manufacturers of all skill levels and hobbyists can use Pogo Pin to make pieces together to make durable and accurate connections with durable materials.
Magnetic design: the magnetic design of the Neuron allows education workers to display hands-free when teaching in front of students.
Continuous update platform: to explore and create a stable new project through continuous block and frequent software and textbook update platform.
Extensible and easy to build: all Neuron piece can be by connecting plate with Makeblock and mechanical parts compatible with LEGO ® bricks.
Intuitive software: neuronal gadgets can be controlled and/or programmed using mBlock&Neuron (graphical and process-based programming systems) without precoding knowledge.
Integration with Microsoft’s cognitive services: due to the integration with Microsoft, it can easily realize the Internet of things, voice and face recognition with a few clicks.
Creative Cloud: users can share Makeblock Creative Cloud (for example, using pet feeders tend to be on vacation the user’s pet), WiFi using mobile devices and/or their families Neuron tablet easily to a small tool.
Open SDK: the core Neuron protocol and library are Open source. Users can contribute custom creation as a developer.
“Our vision is to create a whole STEM education product that can be used at home or in the classroom,” said Jason Wang, Makeblock’s founder and chief executive. “Neurons perfectly match this, allowing manufacturers to break the rules and create boundaries with different components of the kit. Cognitive services from Microsoft virtual gardening to iot cat feeding device, we are happy to let the user can use the Makeblock neurons toolkit to create play interesting in our daily life and function of small tools.
