Introducing Makeblock Halocode
Wireless single board computer
Makeblock Halocode is a single board computer with built-in Wi-Fi. Designed as a tool to teach for programming in educational settings, its compact design integrates a wide range broad selection of electronic modules. Paireding with our block-based programming software mBlock, Halocode offers endless all sorts of opportunities to experience AI & IoT application with just a few clicks; it makes creation easy and fun.
On this summarised version book Educational Robotics with Halocode, you will find an explanation about the graphical programming environment mBlock 5 as also some projects, with different levels, that will help you to take the first steps with the new Halocode.
For AI & IoT learning
Using mBlock software, students can connect to the Internet in just 3 simple steps. mBlock makes it easy to use IoT applications and create simple, smart home devices. Different Wi-Fi modules enable “wireless” or even “limitless” connections between multiple Halocodes, meaning they can provide creative effects such as dreamlike digital art.
A great tool experience and understand the basics of coding
Coding with blocks is as simple as stacking building bricks. Designed explicitly for students to learn coding , Halocode works perfectly with our block-based programming software mBlock. Students can drag and drop the command blocks to code, making programming intuitive and straight forward.
After grasping how to program with blocks, you can view the Python Code with just a click. It displays the relationship between the two languages and shows the changes in real time. Multi-thread programming, 4MB of memory and an Xtensa dual-core 32 bit LX6 microprocessor means Halocode has powerful computing capabilities. Multiple programs can run simultaneously and complex and diverse functions can be synchronised, meaning your imagination is the limit.
Support mBuild expansion parts
Plugged with specific mBuild electronic modules, Halocode can be further used to meet the needs of STEAM education. Students can freely create a smart curtain, a fire warning device for people with disabilities, or even a greenhouse ecosystem, to name but a few.
