It seems to me that Makeblock have completely lost track of their original idea - the one we all loved and supported. These days they’re just creating uncreative toys that don’t builds skills or teach you anything. They’re basically competing with everyone else instead of going with what made them unique. To me they seem like a great example of a company that is dying?
- Some weeks ago I were at Shenzhen Maker Faire and Makeblock was not one of the exhibitors. That’s just crazy?
- Today I looked for a part that I need (Linear Motion Rail) and they’ve dropped it from the product line. What gives?
- They keep launching new websites, but every iteration has been worse the the previous one. Don’t they even care?
- They obviously don’t know anything about how to keep your rating with the search engines, but why did they stop replying to questions in this forum?
I’m puzzled. They had such a great product. They were a unique example of Chinese innovation within the hardware business. They even went public and sold stock from what I remember. They exported across the entire globe and had local resellers all over the place. All the resellers have now left them and the webshops are either closed or just selling out surplus. It’s obvious that they’re no longer actively selling Makeblock.
