Decoded/Decompiled Wowwee Robot Commands

Einfari's picture

Based on this lovely YouTube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYsXKRmaQug&index=3&list=LLdm1UAO1Xfve0o...) I was able to get the source code for my CHiP robot dog app. I have all the raw files for the app, including all the commands that are under the folder bluetoothrobotcontrollib. Since I really am not that good at programming, is there a way I can run these commands by pairing my CHiP (or other wowwee) bot to my computer and then play various sound and movement files?

Rumble Robot Cards

Hi

Just in case anyone can help me with some old robots I'd like to give to my son for Christmas.

I got some old Rumble Robots cheap off ebay, but realised after a while that it needs the cards to operate. The cards are expensive to buy and generally hard to get hold of.

 

The rumble robot wiki lists loads of codes for what seems like most of the cards: http://rumblerobots.wikia.com/wiki/DIY_Cards

Hi there,I recently bought an "old" Humanoid Mechrc Shadow Stalker via Internet in Holland.This Robot is from around 2008 fully operational and great fun and complete apart from the original RS232 serial cable which give the possibility to program this Robot.I can make one myself but I am looking for the original pin assignment for this cable.The PCside is 15 pins male RS232 and the part that enters the robot should be a 2.5 mm Jack .I pressume this is a Stereo jack , but I am not sure of this.I could make a generic cable as I can find on the Internet but I rather know for sure I am hooking

I-cybie hack help

Einfari's picture

I know this might be a long shot, but does anyone here have experience with I-cybie hacks? I saw some posts about them here but they were ancient, as are i cybies. I bought an i cybie over the summer because I always liked the way they looked and I wanted to hack one. I ended up buying  a second i cybie about a month ago because it came with a walk up charger. Here is a picture of them. The blue one is Vegas and the gold one is Jersi.

Anyone opened or hacked MiP yet?

Gib's picture

Hi,

 

MiP has been shipping for a few weeks now but I still have not seen any posts regarding mods or hacks!

 

I tried opening the case but even with all the screws removed I was not able to remove the back cover from the body because the lower portion of the case protrudes into the hub of the wheel. I tried removing the three screws from the wheel but was not able to disassemble the wheel. Anyone know how to get in without breakage?

 

Also does anyone know if it is possible to get to the operating system through the bluetooth interface?
