So, I have finally got new notebook computer, a Dell with Windows 7 on it. Even downloaded latest EZ builder. Has anyone had luck with trying to control that new Wowee MIPS robot. Im just
finding out it requires Bluetooth. Sadly I'm unable to get the Iphone APP to download either, so I cannot test anything that way. Im assuming I need a Bluetooth adapter, so any suggestions one one?

Thanks!

I have found a few conversations, tutorials and activities that may help with your question. Take a look at these links. I've sorted them by what I believe to be most relevant but that is not always the case as I'm still learning.


Also, consider reviewing the Learn section for informative lessons and activities. Check it out!

Here's the release notes for the update which included the MIPS control.

If it uses bluetooth then yes you will need a bluetooth adapter on your PC provided this is how it is used in EZ-Builder - there is no mention of any modifications required for use. However DJ did state that this is the first thing which uses the UART port (unless I have misunderstood).

hi robohappy

Well, I was able to download it to my iTunes app, but still unable to download it to the phone.

There are a ton USB Bluetooth adapters on eBay.... I have something very similar to this Bluetooth and it works perfectly....

The mip is controlled by the ezb v4 only and uses the uart peripheral port.

We will eventually have a tutorial Smile

Oh ok, Thanks for that info DJ, and to everyone with their input. I did discover this new laptop does in fact have built in Bluetooth, and it can even pick up my Iphone. Have been able to download the Iphone app to my ITunes on this pc, just unable to get it to transfer over to the phone. I do have a call into the Wowee people for about this too.

I was curious. What advantages there was to controlling the mips. What more could you make it do? Maybe I need to think outside of the brain for this one. What are some of the advantages?
