I just received a used rovio that I purchased on eBay. I downloaded the software and manual and followed the setup steps. I got the charging dock assembled and plugged in and put the rovio in place. When I pushed the power button the blue LEDs came on, blinked a few times then started pulsing every 5-10 seconds or so. This seems like what it is supposed to do. However, there is no light on the power button. Is this supposed to come on immediately? What could be wrong if it doesn't come on?
I face a problem with ROVIO’s programming and I need your kind help either in solving this problem or in finding a suitable solution for it.
I live in an area in which its electric current is not regular. Power cuts for a long time and for several times a day. So, ROVIO’s battery cannot be full charged and sometimes cannot be charged at all.
For that, I need a system amendment in which I can cancel the automatic back of ROVIO to the base when battery is empty.
Question no longer applied, pls delete!
Is anyone interested in connecting Arduino to Rovio?
I managed to do this using I2C, so i can post a detailed report with many photos.
If you've ever wanted to equip your Rovio with any kind of sensors or other custom devices - that's it.
It was neccessary for my project, and at the moment i have 2 Rovio's with Arduino inside, communicating with each other using IR emitter ("gun") and receiver (so we can play a kind of 3D-shooter).
Rovio Commander is available again. I have added a new protection scheme. Rovio Commander still uses your Rovio's MAC along with a conformation code. This conformation code scheme also checks in the code and if there are two or more Rovio's on different newtork your code will be disabled. DO NOT share your CODE, if your code is shared then it will become invalid and you will need to purchase another code.
Thanks for everyones support.
I picked my Rovio up off eBay and even though I knew I would have problems, plunged in anyway. I have searched the boards and haven't quite found my issue so thought I would quickly ask.
My Rovio seems to be charging, when I log into to see it, it shows full bars, but it will not leave its dock on its own and as soon as I physically pick it up it is dead. It will not power up at all, is the battery just dead or is there something going on with the connectors?
Any helps is appreciated.
I' wondering if anyone has a wheel (with motor) for sale ?
As mentioned on some other threads, I recently purchased headlights from China.
The Chinese seller didn't provide any description of how to install them, so therefore I'm writing this post so others might understand how to do this. The headlights has been discussed on this forum before - see here.
