I’m using 15 Bolts in primary class, handing out one robot for each student. One annoying impediment I come across right from the beginning is the connecting process to the app. There is chaos among the class while connecting each iPad to the 15 robots. With 15 robots to select from in the connect list no one including me has any clue which robot belongs to whom. The problem here is the generic name tag or ID of the robot like “SB-FC29”, "SB-813A etc. There is no distinguish mark to differentiate the 15 Bolts, neither in the app nor on the robot itself. Stickers should be avoided because they influence the moving behaviour.
The ability to give them custom names would really help and I hope this will be possible in the future through an update. It is for me the most pressing issue and my most wanted feature, to change those “SB-FC29” names with custom names to the robots.
There must be an identifier functionality for the pairing if 15 robots are connected to 15 iPads. I often hear “Where is my robot?”, “Who has my robot”, “No, this is my robot!” which brings disturbance to the class and could be avoided easily with the right design.
