Moving an e-mail thread with Alan to the forum, since others may also have the same questions I do about Rover 2.0 support:
Question from me:
When (if ever) do you plan to support version 2.0 of Brookstone's Rover Spy Tank? http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0093285XK/
Answer from Alan:
Thanks for reaching out to EZ-Robot. We are still a start-up company with only 2 people running the whole show so unfortunately at this time we can't add support to everything right away. We are definitely going to add support to as many devices as possible, we just don't know exactly when.
Thanks for your interest in integrating ARC with the brookstone. Its a great way to go
Keep in touch on our community forum. All our releases and updates get published there as well as facebook!
New question from me:
Thanks for the info. Very impressed with what you guys have done. Have you guys already tested rover 2.0 and found that there were breaking changes since the older rover?
I'll definitely order the EZ-Robot products once I get a robot that's supported. Just wondering which version of the rover I should get to ensure support.
I'd order the older rover, but would hate to then find out the 2.0 version is already supported because the manufacturer didn't make changes that would break existing rover support already in EZ-SDK and EZ-Builder.
Also, I'd hate to order the 2.0 rover only to find out that I can't use EZ-SDK or ARC with it. If you already know that rover 2.0 made breaking changes, then I'll be confident in getting the older rover, knowing it's worth giving up any advancements in 2.0 in favor of solid integration with EZ-SDK and EZ-Builder.
