Connection of Rovio extra headlight

kakemann's picture

Hi, I would like to install some headlights which bought from here.I have assembled all the parts together and connected them to the batteries of Rovio.There is a small circuit board between the headlights and the battery connector. On this circuit board there is a small wire which I assume is the switch.I hope this headlight can be connected so the stock headlight button in web browsers can be used to turn the headlights on and off.Can someone with?modding skills advice me on?where?to connect this?wire in order for the switch to work?

rovio MAC address - resetting SetMac.cgi API correction

tobyb's picture

A correction to the Rovio API 1.3.

The API documentation says:

http://<IP address>/SetMac.cgi?MAC=

The correct command is:

http://<IP address>/SetMac.cgi?mac=AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF

... for your MAC and IP address. The former will set you MAC address randomly to some function of the supplied MAC like 00:00:00:00:80:AF

I know resetting the MAC is not a good idea generally but if you have to .. then this how.
