Meet the Makeblock Neuron: another STEM kit for young makers. It contains more than 30 blocks to cover input, output, power, and communication. Neuron has a plug & play magnetic design. The parts are compatible with LEGO bricks. Users will be able to control their creations from their smartphone or tablet via WiFi.
The kit will have open source content. Support for IoT projects is available through Microsoft Cognitive Services. You get camera, light sensor, PIR sensor, sound, soil moisture, and other modules to get started. You can find this project on Kickstarter.
