Make Your Roamer Wireless
The Bluetooth Module links Roamer to computers, tablets and mobile phones. You can quickly set up multiple Roamers for different tasks. It makes Roamer part of a connected world, rich in educational opportunity. For example, you can program the robot on the computer. Students can make their Roamer talk to their friend’s robot. Or perhaps Roamer can explore an alien world and tell “mission control” what it finds.
Technical Specification: The Roamer Bluetooth Module is a BTLE device (Bluetooth Low Energy also called BT4.0). The latest mobile technologies come with this built-in. Older computers use Classic Bluetooth (Bluetooth 2.0). If your computer has this technology, then you will need a Bluetooth Dongle to work with Roamer.
Introductory Special offer applies to all orders placed before 31st December 2015.
An Alternative to Wireless Technology
Connecting Roamer to the computer makes it more useful. For example you can run Roamer from software like Scratch. You can save and restore programs. You can change an Early Years Roamer into a Junior Roamer. You can set the Roamer up to suit your needs. This Interface links the robot and the computer. To send a program to 3 Roamers, you need to do each separately. The alternative is to use the wireless Bluetooth Module. That technology will do all 3 at once, but you need 3 Modules. With the Bluetooth you can simultaneously run screen and floor robots. With this product you download, disconnect and then run the program.
For Computers Without BTLE
The Roamer Wireless System is based on Bluetooth Low Energy (BTLE or Bluetooth 4.0). If your computer or mobile uses older Bluetooth Specs (Bluetooth 2.0 and 3.0) you will need this Dongle. Simply plug it into your USB and you are good to go. The system is compatible with Windows 7, Win8 , Mac, OS, X systems.
