Someone on WowWee's facebook suggested they make a Rovio 2. They said they liked the idea so much they sent it to their development team. Just wanted to let all the Rovio fans know.
I have a slightly used Rovio Beacon for sale. I am asking $25.00 plus you pay for shipping. Will only ship in the USA only. Send me PM.
Can anyone provide my a clear head on view of the circuit board which the stock headlight mounts in? I am interested in where the red, green & white wires are soldered. My wires may not be right. I have no NAV nor headlight.
Thanks in advance,
A correction to the Rovio API 1.3.
The API documentation says:
The correct command is:
... 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.
I am using XP and had downloaded and installed Rivio Siftware Installer v.2.3 from the wowee.com/en/support/rovio page.
Before I saw a page to run my Rovio, it told me to install the firmware. From the same page I downloaded and installed the firmware. But since then it will not connect to my Rovio and the kittle on/off light does not lite up.
Is there a way un do the installs and start over. My network is fine. All so the lights around Rovio light up fine.
Anyone parting out a Rovio? I am looking to buy the small board closest to the front of the body near the headlight.
Thanks, Rich flowersrj AT upmc.edu
A while back I wrote some C++ source code that helps me communicating with the Rovio.
It might be of use for your projects, you can download it at:
It should be pretty self-explanatory.
Has somebody already found out how to avoid the auto dock routine getting initialized on low battery state?
One reason why I want to stop the Rovio from starting to automatically drive back to the charging dock is that I installed some other hardware on top of the unharmed Rovio that blocks the camera arm from moving upwards.
I think there are two options to stop the Rovio from driving "back home":
1. Direct firmware hack (changing some values with a hex editor).
2. Modifying (open) source code and compiling the firmware with the ARM Developer Suite 1.2.
