CHIP: Firmware opportunities to Chip & App - Adding a worthy product accessory

CaptainBoom's picture

Hi Robot Communitty, I'm entering this feedback in an effort to address some opportunities that would extend your robot Chip's use, enjoyment and lifecycle. My 16 month year old son LOVES this toy. He is a bit rough, but then better a robot dog than a little dog. If he breaks Chip, I will be buying him another one. Below is a list of some experiences we have had, and I wanted to share some thinking on how to enhance / improve the existing Chip platform without forcing upgrades to the current model. For the love of god - please:An easy firm update worthy of everyones interest.

RoboRemote Alternatives?

Hello Forum!

I got a Tribot over Summer from a resale shop. Works just fine (turn it on, it does the random start-up sequence, and waits for command). Problem is, it didn't come with a remote. I downloaded Roboremote, but alas I do not have the corresponding plug-in device to use with it. Because the plug-in plugs into the audio jack, and because the Wowwee Robots typically run on IR, I was wondering if there was a way to use an IR blaster. I have 2 that I got for experimentation purposes, but the Tribot doesn't seem to respond to them. This leads me to 3 possible conclusions:

Rovio Firmware v5.03 and WPA2 - 26byte key crash

Hi Rovio people,

I am running Rovio with the latest firmware (v5.03) and found a strange problem: whenever I use WPA2 and a PSK consisting of exactly 26 alphanumerical characters, Rovio does not connect to the network but instead "crashes" (i.e. I need to restore factory settings). Among many other keys I have tried the following:

WPA2 PSK: yeqwoif0treqasf723waifj219         (26 chars, Rovio fails)
WPA2 PSK: yeqwoif0treqasf723waifj219a       (27 chars, Rovio works just fine)
