Definition of Neuron

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.

Neuron 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!

Flow-based Programming

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.

mBlock supported

Neuron gadgets can be controlled and/or programmed using mBlock & Neuron App.


All blocks can be compatible with the mechanical parts of Makeblock and LEGO® bricks via Neuron board.

Idea Cards

In order to get started with Neuron, each kit equips several Idea Cards to provide you with some ideas and the corresponding instructions.

Open SDK

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.

Pogo Pin

Thanks to its simple and precise connection, Neuron blocks are more durable. More information about Pogo Pin can be referred to here.

Magnetic Design

The magnetic design at the back of Neuron blocks facilitates educators to demonstrate lab work and teach in front of their students.
