Upcoming Minibloq.v0.81 features summary
Hi! The next version of Minibloq is near, and here are some of its features:
1. Minibloq will support strings (and emoticons!) over the board's serial ports:
2. We added HID communications capabilities. By now, the only board that uses it is the DuinoBot.v1.2.HID, but this will surely enable other non standard CDC devices to be programmed with Minibloq in the near future:
3. Minibloq now support comment between blocks. It also adds the comments in real time to the code:
As you can see in that last post, there are more sensor blocks too, some of them specially useful for robotics.
4. Full support for Internationalization/Localization: I will make another update soon about this important feature.
Plus we corrected some bugs and improved other small details.
I have to say a word about the sources: The following version (v0.82) will be the first released with sources. But right now, I'm sending them to every backer that ask for them. So if you were a backer, and want the sources, please send me an email.

Thanks, every bit helps! Get your name listed as a backer on Minibloq's website (http://minibloq.org).
Pledge $9 or more
Hey, thanks! You will be mentioned as a backer on the website. In addition, your name will be listed in Minibloq's About.
Pledge $39 or more
Many thanks! You will be mentioned as a backer on the website, and in Minibloq's About. In addition we will do the following: Minibloq v1.0 Beta release will take some time to be ready from the moment the project gets funded. But upon funding success, we will send to you a pre-release Alpha version. This way, you can start playing sooner!
Pledge $69 or more
Great! Many many thanks! Includes everything from above, plus upon funding success we will send you the pre-release Alpha version and its full source code. This way, you will get the sources sooner, (because the sources will become public some time after the release of Minibloq v1.0 Beta).

Wow! Includes everything from above. In addition, we will send you a limited edition new RobotGroup's DuinoBot.Kids controller ready to work with Minibloq. This not-yet-released piece of hardware has an AVR core (32KB Flash), two DC (small) motor control outputs (with MOSFET H-Bridges), USB 2.0, laser cutted case, a step-up power supply, buzzer, 8x8 LED matrix display and five 3-pin sensor connectors. You can see it in action in the project's video. NOTE: The hardware will be sent about 20-30 days after funding success (aprox.)
Pledge $770 or more
If you are an Arduino-compatible hardware maker (both soft and hard compatible), and want to see your board or shield in Minibloq's official distribution, this is for you. We will work with you to integrate it. NOTE: The hardware integration could take some time after funding success. Any question or idea regarding this, please message us.
