Makeblock – Mechanical prototyping platform

Posted on Monday, December 17th, 2012 in robotics by DP

We met the Makerblock team during our Shenzhen Maker Faire visit earlier this year. They let us know that their system is close to being finalized. It’s a mechanical prototyping platform designed to make it easy to assemble robots, linear actuators, and other mechanical devices.

Now, we improved a lot on this project, Makeblock can be used to build many kinds of wheel robot, track robot, robot arm or linear motion mechanism, this is a perfect choice for geeks or makers to turn their ideas into success, I think the readers of your website will be very interested in Makeblock.
