Have a question?
@Raul muchas gracias! Lo probaré.
Hi, I'm backer 1280 and backed 3 All-in-one kits.
I've submitted all the required information in May as requested.
My backer number was not listed as one with missing fields which means all my details are in order.
But it was not ship previously and also not listed in the shipping list - not the last batch or in Update 13. Have I been missed out completely??
I'm relocating soon and need to receive the parcel before then. Please help!
I am backer no 677. It would be a birthday gift for my son,and I don't get it until now.please check in if my order is ok,It is really to be a surprise for us ......
I am backer no 806. I ordered all in one kit and lot of backers with higher backer numbers was already delivered. How is this possible?
De momento comentaron que MBlock no lo tenían listo para programar Neuron, pero el otro día encontré en su repositorio Git oficial algo muy interesante para poder controlar Neuron vía web con NodeJS. https://github.com/Makeblock-official/neuron-engine
Espero que te sea útil yo tengo ganas de probarlo en cuanto me llegue mi kit.
What's the status of #1094? I can't find it in your shipping schedule.
Ich bin Unterstützer Nr. 569 und habe bis heute keine Lieferung erhalten. Was ist los?
I am backer Nr. 569 and did'nt get my shipment yet. What's going on?
@makeblock: Previously you replied to my earlier enquiry in the comments below that I am scheduled for the next shipment, but I do not see my number listed in your latest update. I am backer 1551 for all-in-one kit. Did you skip my number?? Please advise. Thanks.
Same for #504.
Hi there. I am backer 255 and I have updated my phone number which was listed as missing. I see no place to message you as requested. Please let me know if you have received this comment.
Hi, would appreciate an update on backer #155. Curious why my early backing of an all-in-one kit isn't in the first US shipment with many higher backer numbers after mine in the all in one list. Makes me think you are still missing information from me. I updated when asked. Thanks, brent
I am curious why the sets aren't sent out in order. I am 593, and all of my data has been submitted. I backed at the all-in-one level.
@makeblock received the Neuron set, it looks great. I have no Tablet so how can I control the neuron? With Mblock? I try to connect the bluetooth but it doesnt work
Thank you for the shipping update here. I am backer#1508 and didn't see my # listed in the kits going out anytime soon. Can you give me an expectation on when I can see my kit? Thank-you!
Thank you for the information, when the shipment is made please provide us the tracking number.
@MakeBlock... my pledge number is 1231, noticed on the latest update, pledged before and after has been shipped and are being shipped, any particular reason why my package still has not been shipped or a reasonable update would be nice.
Could you piorize Nr 359 ? Ist is a present i woild like to handover in August :-) would be great !
@MakeBlock... my pledge number is 436, noticed on the latest update, pledged before and after has been shipped and are being shipped, any particular reason why my package still has not been shipped or a reasonable update would be nice.
Hi, I'm an early backer. I've submitted all the required information in May as requested. My backer number was not listed as one with missing fields which means all my details are in order. But it is also not listed in the shipping list - not the last batch or in Update 13. Have I been missed out completely??
For the shipment query listed below, please check out our latest post for more details. Thanks!
Guys we suppose to receive the kit on June now it's almost the end of July and no even clear schedule from you.
I am buying this as a gift for my kids for their success in school. I hope they can get it before they start school again.
I would like to buy more blocks, But can't see away to do that. Even in your own store. How can I order them? Do I get a discount since I'm a backer of this project?
I have been awaiting almost a month. Any update about delivery? I want to learn in summer and prepare for new academic year. Please response soon.
Still waiting on mine. I hope to get an update soon.
$78 in duties and taxes CDN. FYI
Backer #840 (me) updated survey with contact (phone) number. Is that all you needed? And when will my kit ship?
Can you update all of us on your shipping schedule? I noted the last shipping update was about a month ago. Eager to see when I can expect to see our shipment go out. (Yes, I have updated all my shipping information). Thank-you.
I REALLY need a WLAN block. Or a set containing one. Is there a way I can order one? Could you somehow make that possible? Money is not important! :)
Kickstarter is not buying from an online shop. Or being a share-holder. At best it's high risk investment. Please refrain from tax complaints, because it's part of investment planning ;).
55USD tax I don't keep the parcel, this is my last pledge.
I received mine, and its awesome. Amazing quality product. Love it!!!
Thanks, and yes, I've updated my shipping information.
I received notice that shipping was happening soon. That was back on June 26 - any updates?
@Makeblock backer #690 any update to shipping to Australia?
@Makeblock Can you check the shipping on mine I’m backer#212 my info was correct and I have not received or heard anything.
I tested the dual servo driver + 2 servos again: now it works. But 1 of the servo demonstrates peculiar behaviour > the servo hub of the top servo, rotates more than 50% SLOWER than the normal speed (as demonstrated) of the bottom servo.
A video which i shot: https://youtu.be/1VerS6Qq1ew
I'll post this in both the forum page and also the Makeblock Talk & Share group in https://www.facebook.com/groups/makeblock
@ Ivan Yup I realized that however,the app is only available for tablet and not for 5 inch android phone
Makeblock Neuron app in Google play store, by xeecos.
This seems to be the only 1.
Just checking, is the neuron app on android also?
@Fahim, thank you for the password (pw) on WiFi connection. Makeblock is indeed the right pw.
I tried the WiFi block, camera blk, power blk & neuron app. It works. Too much to share here.
In the app, generated qr code & share the link:
Maybe we can start posting in http://forum.makeblock.com.
Thanks for trying out the Dual Servo Driver. It appears something is not right with either or both the DSS, Servos.
@Ivan Hoe I tested the Dual Servo Driver + Servo set up as per page 25 of the manual and the servos worked for me. I could hear the servos spinning each time I turned the knob.
@Angela Lee You are right - I did notice the Chinese characters on the website too :) The very first project I tried was the Fortune Adventure one and similar to you, I was confused as to where I could find the emoticon options in the Makeblock Neuron app - I expected them to be in one of the drawers and kept searching. Finally realized what needed to be done when I read the Software Guide here: http://neuron.makeblock.com/software-help/getting-started/#Connect-with-Wifi
I think the Idea Cards could be improved by either colour coding the programming items to match the components in the app and/or by adding a bit more instructions on where to find each of the programming blocks/components in the Neuron app.
While I got the kit just to play around with my nephews, I would be happy to help with any efforts to create better PDFs or even PDFs with additional experiments/projects.
@Fahim Farook thanks for responding, yes eventually discovered my LED panel wasn't communicating with the app - reset and was able to get the emoticons as you stated by clicking on the LED block within the app. The Chinese characters are only present on the website http://neuron.makeblock.com/example/fortune-adventure/ not the actual example cards (wasn't very clear in my explanation sorry).
I use these with young primary students right through to high schoolers so a simpler version of the example projects would be very useful, even just a PDF download would be great happy to work with others to create this if it's something that is going to be useful.
@Ivan Hoe I have not tried the Dual Servo Driver component yet. So will post later if I have the same issue as you once I've tried it out.
I don't have an Android device. I got my iOS version of the Makeblock Neuron app from the Apple App Store and there, if I recall correctly, the app was under Makeblock as the developer.
According to something someone posted further down in the thread, apparently the password for the WiFi block is "makeblock".
Angela Lee Agree about the Idea Cards - I realize they had to be concise but the instructions could be clearer. My kit did not have Chinese characters on the Idea Cards though. Regarding setting up emoticons, I had to look this up on the Makeblock site - you have to click on the LED panel component on the Neuron app and you get the options to select various emoticons.
@clowe Your backer number was not listed in the e-mail sent out about kits already shipped. Also it appears that your backer number is listed in the "Contact Number No Show backers" list from the last update. So if you corrected your contact number details since then, my guess would be that you might be in the next batch.
@Makeblock Neuron Team / Fellow Makeblockers,
I received the All-in-One kit this week. There are 3 issues:
1) *Dual Servo Driver + Servo (p25 pf the manual): I tried the "Try it now!" connecting the Power Block, Knob, Servo Driver Block together.
*The servos don't rotate. In fact, there is no noise within the servos. Nothing's rotating inside at all.
2) Makeblock Neuron app in Google play store, is it the app by xeecos?
There seems to be the only 1. Just wanted to confirm.
3) Wireless connection between the neuron wifi block & my tablet > to try camera block.
But what's the required password?
(I had to connect power block to wifi block before neuron-xxx could be detected. Though in the all-in-one manual, p23, it was not stated that power block had to be connected).
Since the hotspot is the neuron hotspot.. So password should be the neuron wifi password?
Appreciate if someone can advise what's happening or has anyone encountered these issues too?
Can I have an update on Backer #1631 please? Thanks
Great to receive my light wizard kit, well packaged and really well made. Is it possible to make the instructions for the example projects a little more user-friendly? The programming listed in the fortune-maker project has Chinese characters under it - can we have an English translation please and a bit more detail about how students would go about getting emoticons into their program?
We will make an official update in the early next week in order to make all backers clear about the current status.
Hi Mr. XU, thanks for your support!
All-in-One Kits x3/x6 are in the second batch.
Glad to know that you have received the Neuron All-in-One Kit, please download the App via iPad, it’s not available for iPhone as for now.
You are in the first batch, please wait.

@Moydi & KP
Hi Moydi& KP, thanks for your support!
The Bundle Kits are in the second batch.
@Raúl González Moya
Based on the information we have received from the logistics, your product has been shipped.
We will double confirm it to you in the coming update, please wait.
The problem has been solved in yesterday. So products will be shipped soon to U.S. but the date needs to be rescheduled.
Please provide an update on shipments to the US. Last I heard, all US shipments were delayed due to custom issues.
