Thank you so much for being willing to work with methods you find less than ideal while we work through this; I am so happy you were even able to discover that that method worked on your own (nice sleuthing!)!
What kinds of ideas do you have, in addition to R2D2 potentially being able to display notifications from other devices? Admittedly, bots like those we produced for the Star Wars movie err more on the side of being novelty toys that have the added bonus of also allowing you to learn to code, but I LOVE your creativity and would love to hear more; maybe you can post some of your ideas in the Show and Tell boards?
If you are looking to take things to the next level, our newest robot, RVR was built specifically for people like you! While we’ve been more focused on grade-school education up to this point (although, I’ve always found our bots to be fun for adults like myself, too!), RVR was built to not only be fun and educational for the younger/less experienced crowd, but to also engage seasoned developers like yourself. It works with the same Edu app as all of our other bots, but we also made it highly expandable so that you can attach different development boards and other toys to it AND we developed 5 new SDKs, just to go with it!! You can check out more of the details on those and some example projects we built using them to get the creative juices flowing on our new SDK site!
While I know it can be a bummer when you feel like you are hitting the limits of the tech you have at hand, we’ve been listening to all of you that learned and grew with us over these past few years and wanted to grow even further with you and develop tech that could keep up with our insanely smart and creative users like you!
I am so looking forward to seeing and hearing about all that you do! Thanks for being a part of our community!
