NEURON FAMILY HIGHLIGHTS
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 (Internet of Things) and Microsoft Cognitive Services, with just a few touches.
All blocks can be compatible with the mechanical parts of Makeblock and LEGO® bricks via the Neuron board.
Neuron gadgets can be controlled and/or programmed using mBlock (Microsoft Windows, Apple OSX, Google Chrome, Linux) & Neuron App on Tablet or Mobile Phone (Android or iOS).
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 Pogo Pin Wiki.
