Minibloq in China

It has been some time since my last post. But there is a good reason: I traveled to China for 3 weeks. It was a really nice experiencie! And among other tasks, together with Ing. Rodolfo Cossovich, we presented there Minibloq and Multiplo in different places. By other way, we are making some agreements in order to add more support to open source hardware from Chinese companies, like Seeedstudio and DFRobot. We were also kindly invited by professor Zhao Qian from the University of Nanchang, as can be seen in the following pictures:
Here are some pictures about our visit to Seeedstudio and the talk at their hackerspace in Shenzhen:
I'm also very happy because we finally met David Li and He Qichen in Shanghai, creators of Ardublock, another great graphical programming environment for Arduino compatible controllers. David is also one of the cofounders of Xin Che Jian, the first hackerspace in Shanghai (which is an awesome place!):
So what else were we doing in China? I'm sure there will be more news soon, but we are working on something good about open source robotics, which I know will also be good for the Minibloq project. By now, here is a picture of the new Robotgroup's Shanghai office:
Now, I'm going back to work on the next v0.81.Beta release...
