AI electronic module platform
Our new series of electronic modules called mBuild is compact but powerful, and easy to use. It includes over 60 types of modules, supports infinite combinations, and can be used offline without further programming. Supported by mBlock, mBuild offers a wide range of opportunities to create interesting projects. The diversity of mBuild means that it can meet the needs of beginners, right through to professionals. It facilitates learning the basics of programming, developing advanced projects, teaching AI & IoT, joining robotics competitions and much more.

for educational scenarios.
Featuring an ingenious structural design, the connecting interface of mBuild can either fasten to standard mechanical parts with M4 screws or stack to the classic building bricks. Compared to the RJ25 series, each mBuild module is up to 30-60% smaller and 50% thinner. All these designs aim to make electronic modules suitable for teaching in classrooms and bring a better creation experience in electronic projects.
M4 holes Standard hole size for fastening to mechanical parts
Flexible structural design Direct combination of various modules
Stud holes for building bricks Standard hole size for interlocking the classic building bricks
Insulation design Preventing hardware failure such as short circuits
empowers mBuild awesome performance
Each electronic module comes with a microcontroller unit (MCU), which gives it many intelligent features, such as series connection and ready-to-play capabilities.
Infinite combinations¹, infinite creativity
Designed based on the patented ‘Makeblock Neuron Protocol’, mBuild allows electronic modules to connect in series connection without the need to distinguish between input and output interfaces. This means that you can connect over 10 electronic modules without needing an extra extension board when the mainboard has limited ports, making your complex design simple and elegant.
Offline mode — easy to use, ready to invent
mBuild supports offline usage without further programming or connecting to a mainboard. You can achieve robust functionality by directly combining the appropriate modules, for example, create a piano by connecting a Multi-touch module and a Speaker. These features help beginners gain the knowledge and applications of the different modules quickly.
60+ electronic modules²
for AI & IoT education and competitions
mBuild has a wide range of electronic modules, including a Smart Camera, a Humiture Sensor, a Dual RGB Color Sensor, a PIR Sensor, and an MQ2 Gas Sensor, which can meet the needs for AI and IoT education. More electronic modules will soon be available for robotics competitions.
