Did You Know?
The MiP comes with 7 different game modes, which can be accessed by turning his wheels, besides using the App on your smart phone or tablet.
1. BLUE = “MiP mode”
The default mode is called “MiP mode”, represented by the color blue. In this mode, the user can use his hands to control the robot. The key to using this mode effectively is to give MiP a wide surface area to recognize. The flatter your hand is when you come at him, the better the response will be.
2. PINK = “Stack Mode”
The next mode is called Stack, represented by the color pink. In this mode, the user is supposed to put his tray table onto MiP, and stack as many objects on to MiP’s tray as possible. As you do, MiP will say “MiP” faster and faster. His timer then runs out, and he spins around making everything go flying. Then you do it all again!
3. WHITE: “CAGE mode”
After stack, comes cage game, represented by the color white. Here, MiP will say “MiP go”, indicating the start of the game. Now, MiP is in a virtual cage and you have to prevent him from escaping by putting your hands in front of MiP’s sensors in his eyes. If you don’t get there in time, MiP wins, and he’ll be a show off about it too! (sound effect).
4. RED: “Trick Mode”
Next, is Tricks mode, represented by the color red. Here, the user must wait for MiP’s chest to start flashing, indicating that he’s ready to take commands. Now, you can program a sequence of actions. You can swipe left to make MiP turn left, right to turn right, forward to roll forward, and backward to roll backwards. Again, it’s important to make your hand as flat as possible so MiP picks it all up accurately. When you’re finished giving him tasks, clap twice or tap MiP on the head two times, and he’ll play it back for you. MiP can remember 50 consecutive gestures commands in a row.
5. YELLOW: “Roam Mode”
Next, is roam mode, represented by the color yellow. Here, you can place MiP on a flat surface and let him navigate his surroundings autonomously. If MiP sees something in his path, he will turn and roll to a different direction. He does not have edge detection however. Be careful not to let him fall of tables or staircases.
6. Orange: “Tracking Mode”
Lastly, we have tracking mode, represented by the color orange. In this mode, the user can place an object, which in this case is my hands but is not limited to just that, over MiP’s eyes. MiP will repeat “MiP” over and over to indicate that he’s tracking. Now he’ll follow you in every direction as opposed to moving for pre-determined sequences like in the default MiP mode.
