      What is the communication protocol? (I2C, JTAG, or ???) How hard would it be to add custom blocks?

      @Ben Raynor
      Thanks for your support and question!
      Based on the KickStarter, backers could not back a campaign for more than one time. So we suggest backers could ask friends and family to help.
      Besides, for your question, actually we have offered the Bundle or Group options.
      Hope it helps. : )

      @Ringo Ko
      Thanks for your question.
      So far we do not have this plan : )

    5. Makeblock 6-time creator 5 days ago

      @Peter Thanks for asking.
      Only in the circumstances when you have the chance to pledge for the limited Early Bird Price Kits separately is cheaper than to pledge for them as a bundle.
      That's to say,
      1)KS price for each kit, good price.
      2)Bundle, better price.
      3)Early Bird, the best price of all.
      Hope it helps : )

      I know you have said before that you are not currently looking to allow people to pick up specific bits or even add more to our basic pledge but I feel this is really limiting the possibility of hitting your very ambitious stretch goal. For example I have managed to get one of the early bird science kits but would also love others but there is no insentive at all to give you more money?

      Some of the pricing I don't understand. It is cheaper to pledge for a light wizard and science kit separately than it is to pledge for them as a reward bundle. Could I not add to my pledge for the kit than having to make another account? Thank you.

      As a student in college,
      I'm honestly looking forward to this more than finishing.

    13. Sean Hunter 7 days ago

      @makeblock, thanks for the heads up on the tackle box. I will keep an eye out. Looks like you did well on your funding. It is a shame you didnt have any lower level stretch goals. 600K was a bit too steep to hit.

      Thanks for your question.

      @Sean Hunter
      Thanks for your support.
      We will produce and sell a separate tackle box in the second half of the year, it is supposed to store more than 50 blocks. Even the tackle box can’t be offered at this moment, you could use the original packing box.

    16. Michel Truchon on April 11

      Do you plan an RFID block?

    17. Sean Hunter on April 11

      I am looking forward to this for my daughter. I pledged one of the two kit bundles. With a larger number of pieces what type of storage should I be looking at once it arrives? With the packaging be sufficient for long term use or should I look for some sort of alternative?

    18. Makeblock 6-time creator on April 10

      @padfan
      When Wi-Fi block, as well as Bluetooth block, is connecting to be charged, it could be regarded as the "battery" to supply power to other blocks.
      Hope it helps, thanks.

      I would like to ask if I purchased the Science Version, and did not bring power, then how do I use the power supply through the USB? For example, I see the WiFi module has a USB port, then the other sensors how to power?

      @Abduljalil Aljaziri
      Thanks for your support and that's really a good idea.
      Actually we can't offer components using for "mass production" right away, but we have been paying attention to your suggestion and will consider it in the short run.

      Abduljalil Aljaziri on April 3

      Makeblock Neuron is great for making prototypes of ideas.
      But what if I want to turn a prototype to production?
      Is there plan to make affordable components that can be used for "mass production"?

    22. Makeblock 6-time creator on March 31

      Hi @Hans Scharler,
      It's a good question.
      We will consider of this feature but it's not available right now. : )
      Thanks for your support and we will keep you posted when it's clear.

    23. Makeblock 6-time creator on March 31

      @Andrejs
      Thanks for your question.
      We would really love to provide the option for you to add on additional blocks. However, it is unlikely to be available before KS campaign end.
      We’ll keep you posted if that option becomes available.

    24. Hans Scharler on March 29

      Great project. I backed this project for the Science Kit. Are you considering an easy way to store and analyze data using ThingSpeak and MATLAB? It is straightforward to send data to the API. Thanks!

      Hi,
      would it be possible to add stuff later via BackerKit?

    26. Sean Hunter on March 22

      Very excited to get in on this. My Daughter is going to be ecstatic.

      @Issac Zhang
      The pledge exclude sales tax.
      The tax is expected to be paid when the product delivers to the customs.

    29. Makeblock 6-time creator on March 21

      @David Driscoll
      Thanks for your question.
      We suggest you to change the pledge button option instead of only by rising the money for the incorrect one. Besides, you can buy Airblock via our Website or Amazon in very soon.

    30. Makeblock 6-time creator on March 21

      @Ben Raynor
      Thanks for your asking.
      We have been paying attention to your problems, and will strive for improvement in the future.

      @Ringo Ko
      Thanks for your support!
      You could choose our 3 All-in-One Kit option or ask a friend to help you order another one.

    32. Makeblock 6-time creator on March 21

      @Nathan @Omar Mulla @Bwps
      We are working on it. Also hope that you can continue to support us.
      In addition, we possibly will get the bulk buy before the campaign end.

      @Rune Spaans
      You can connect with the iPad app by both Bluetooth module & Bluetooth module.

      @Marsha Tyszler.
      Thank you for your advice. We have made some adjustments and updates and will continue to share this survey on other channels.

    35. Jerry Nguyen on March 20

      I want to raise my pledge but shipping is too expensive :( . Anyways, cant wait for it :D

      Please see my comment in Update #4 because there's a problem with the survey settings that will affect the accuracy of the responses you're collecting. Just posting here too to be sure you'll go check the update comments for my explanation. :-)

      I already order 1 set all-in-one campaign, Can I order extra all-in-one campaign ?

      Bwps on March 20

      Any news on buying the individual blocks? That will help boost sales for sure.

      Also, there's too much gap between your stretch goals. You should have something a lot closer than 600K. Perhaps a storage case/bag or something?

      I am a new backer from CA, would your pledge include sales tax? When should I pay sales tax?

      David Driscoll on March 18

      New to kickstarter, if I get some more $$$ can I upgrade to the all-in-one before the campaign finishes (assuming their are some left)?

      Also wondered about adding a airblock to the order (to save on freight to Australia)?

      Hi, just been reading through the comments and was a bit concerned about the lack of EU friendly postage as not wanting to get stung, any idea what the customs charge could be on a science kit for postage to the UK as may have to rethink things if would end up costing the earth and was considering adding one of the other kits in as well.

    42. Omar Mulla on March 17

      I have backed the early bird All in one kit ( I also backed mBot and Airblock). I think the stretch goal from $100,000 to $600,000 is too ambitious..

      Nathan on March 16

      I am thinking the strech might be a bit to much of a strech goal!!

    44. Rune Spaans on March 16

      Hi! Can the WIfi module communicate with the iPad app, or is that only for the Bluetooth module?

    45. Makeblock 6-time creator on March 16

      @Luis
      No, it is not necessary.

    46. Luis on March 15

      Thank you for your answer. I have another question, is a "power" module necessary? I just want to understand how I can play with these kits without the power module (since the science kit does not come with a "power" module).

    47. Makeblock 6-time creator on March 15

      @Chris Means
      Thank for you question.
      The systems development of both iOS and Android would be finished before shipment.

    48. Makeblock 6-time creator on March 15

      @David Cannon
      Thanks for your continuous support. We hope you enjoy our products.
      For your advice, we would give it our fullest consideration as offering the camera block for stretch goal. However, as for now our product team think the LED panel is the best choice.

      @Kelly Sharples
      Please pledge $1,047 for the limited option of 'Early Bird: 3 All-in-One Kit'.

    50. Makeblock 6-time creator on March 15

      Hi @Luis
      The blocks can be charged by both the POWER block and USB wire.
