Description

The WowWee MIP robot is hackable with a UART port on the main board. Connect the GND, TX and RX to the EZ-B's UART Port 0 TX and RX to control it from the EZ-B v4.

We found that the batteries in the WoWwee were not strong enough to power the EZ-B v4 & camera at the same time, so we connected an additional 9volt battery to power the EZ-B v4.

*Note: Remember that if you are powering the EZ-B v4 off a seperate power source, you will need to connect the GND together. It doesn't matter where the GND's come from, long as they are shared between the MIP and EZ-B v4.
Note: EZ-Robot is not a manufacturer of this third party hardware device. . Nor is ezrobot responsible for the operation of this third party device. For operational questions, it's best to consult the instruction manual for operational instructions.
