About this project
What is Makeblock Neuron?
Make Anything, Make Everything.
Makeblock Neuron is a programmable electronic building block platform for STEM education. It contains over 30 kinds of blocks with different functions, so creators can build a variety of innovative gadgets. Combined with intuitive Flow-Based Programming, Neuron enables creators of all programming levels to turn unlimited ideas into reality.
In the Media
Plug & Play
Neuron gadgets can be software independent. You can play Neuron gadgets with/without software namely in online/offline mode. In offline mode, you can build a gadget to activate a servo operation using Ultrasonic Sensor. In online mode, combined with our Neuron App, a gadget can be programmed to have complicated action sequences for servo operation and control its movement remotely. There are infinite ways to Plug & Play!
The easy-to-use Flow-Based Programming in Neuron App software enables advanced features, like IoT and Microsoft Cognitive Services, with just a few touch.
All blocks can be compatible with the mechanical parts of Makeblock and LEGO® bricks via Neuron board.
Neuron gadgets can be controlled and/or programmed using mBlock & Neuron App.
Neuron protocol and library are open-source materials. Everyone is encouraged to be a developer and share their ideas with the others.
Makeblock Creative Cloud
With Makeblock Creative Cloud, you and your family/friends can easily control your home Neuron gadgets via Internet.
Thanks to its simple and precise connection, Neuron blocks are more durable. More information about Pogo Pin can be referred to here.
The magnetic design at the back of Neuron blocks facilitates educators to demonstrate lab work and teach in front of their students.
In order to get started with Neuron, each kit equips several Idea Cards to provide you with some ideas and the corresponding instructions.
Cool tech gadgets using Neuron Blocks.
Work with software
1) Design a beautiful Dress with Lightening Blocks.
Makeblock Neuron Output blocks include lighting blocks like EL Wires, LED strip, RGB LED and LED Panel. This nice fashion dress is inlaid with 8 LED Strips, wings are made of 8 EL Wires and a botton. Different lighting effects can be achieved by programming through Neuron App.
2) Make an IoT Car with Creative Cloud function.
3) Build an Plant Watering System/Anti-Stolen Alarm.
4) Microsoft Cognitive Services for Text Recognition in Photos. More information about Microsoft Cognitive Services can be referred to here.
Neuron App is an intuitive Flow-Based Programming platform. This powerful software makes programming easy and fun for users of all programming levels.
Neuron App recognizes blocks in work and Neuron gadgets can be coded via Flow-Based Programming.
Check out all our Neuron blocks! You would also be impressed by our specialized blocks with unique function.
What's in the box
For now, we have 4 Neuron Kits, including Light Wizard Kit, Science Lab Kit, Explorer Kit, and All-in-One Kit. The contents of each kit are all listed below.
* Each kit includes a Guidebook and Idea Cards.
Rewards & Prices
Risks and challenges
Makeblock values our user's feedback, we hope to constantly improve on our products to create a better user experience. If necessary, Makeblock will improve the final appearances of Neuron blocks, and extend the contents of Neuron kits for enriching ways of play.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
