Minibloq is running in the OLPC XO!

Working hard, as release day is approaching. This week (and thanks to Wine) Minibloq finally ran in an OLPC XO. As Wine is a compatibility layer, not a full emulator, the performance is pretty good! For the release, I will try to improve the GUI to make it more readable in small screens. Here is a small home-made video, programming an Arduino UNO:

And here is another test, with Mutliplo hardware (the new DuinoBot.Kids controller, with a basic Multiplo robot):

  5. Great! My girlfriend and I have a bunch of XOs. We'd love to use these things for some beginning programming classes. Any way to get a hold of an early version of this software? Or where should I look to track the progress?

    Thanks for your efforts!

  6. Hi, if everything goes Ok, I will be releasing the first version for the end of the next month, after a kickstarter.com campaign. To track the progress, the best way is to suscribe to this blog (there is a Suscribe area heren in this screen), or follow me on Twitter (there is a button too, in this screen). Thanks!
