Release Log

mblock Alpha.8

  •  We optimized the way to connect your device. This time, you will only find those valid devices available for programming(like Codey) in the COM list; and you can check if your device has been correctly connected from the on-screen prompt. In the past, you might feed programs you had written for Codey to other robots or even to your mouse. Now, don’t worry about it anymore!
  •  Applause! Welcome new members to our mBlock family, Neuron and micro:bit! In the sprite list, you will find two more sprites, right, Neuron and micro:bit. All you need to do is to have some fun with them and we hope they can serve you well. However, we are still testing the two adds-on, so please stay with us if you run into some trouble. We promise you that we will try our best( well, try our best to push coders…)forever!
  •  We customized an Extension Center just for you! In the Extension Center, you can freely add or delete all the programming blocks, such as AI, IoT. Need the block? Fine, take it now! You don’t want it? Ok, delete it anytime. The interface is clear and well ordered.
  • BIG NEWS!! We have a new function for you, Deep Learning! You can add the Deep Learning function at the bottom-left corner. With the camera, you can teach your computer to recognize various figures. Sounds easy? Yes, just as easy as training your pets. When the model is well trained, you can use the model in your program. In this way, you can interact with the computer, which is just so funny and intelligent.
