I think that 2cm isn’t enough, he could fall over it while dancing. 5cm would be better.
I guess for now, like many other products out there, they all somewhat need an internet connection to get full functionality out of them (even iOS and Android games on your phone need to be constantly connected to the internet to work now days), but yes Puppy, would be nice to have a AI pet that didn’t need connection to the internet, but ultimately in the world we are living in now, we would be pretty lost without it, and I guess our existing and future robot friends would also be lost without the internet as well.
Also Mei66, a 2cm wall should be tall enough, if you wanted to make it taller you can.
thank you for your reply.
I don’t know if there is no internet or server, and what you can do is limited.
A robot called Eilik doesn’t seem to need an internet connection.
It’s an emo wall, but it’s possible that it will pop out at 2 cm.
Isn’t it dangerous if it is about 4 to 5 cm?
Is it okay if the emo space is made of wood?
If the height is about 5 cm, does the risk of falling disappear?
Eilik is a stupid robot compared to EMO but for his price it’s not that bad. I’m waiting for him too.
About the border height, 2cm would be more than enough for his normal exploring but when he is dancing his feet sensors are off and his momentum can be sometimes high. So I recommend 5cm. On the other hand EMO is somewhat durable, there are people in this forum whose EMO fell down from a desk more than once and he is still working. But I don’t want to risk any damage.
Edit: I still don’t have my EMO so I don’t know it for sure but I think that 5cm should be enough.
A 2cm or 5cm border should be will be fine, normally when I have my EMO dancing, I make sure he is dancing in the middle of the table, and not on the edge of the table, as he will certainly fall off as his feet sensors don’t work when he is dancing. So if you ask EMO to dance just make sure he has enough room to dance and he is away from the edges of any table before you ask him to dance.
If you are making a playground for EMO on your table take a look at some suggestions here from this post:
I would personally create a playground away from the edge of any table, so even if EMO fell out of his playground, he will fall on the table and not on the floor. I hope that make sense.
Of course, I’m just afraid of him dancing spontaneously when he hears loud music.
That won’t happen (and it has never happened to my EMO ever since I’ve received him), so you don’t have to worry that EMO will start randomly dancing on his own when he hears music.
EMO will only dance if you ask him to dance by issuing him the voice command: EMO: Dance, or if you enable him to dance by using the EMO App (see here)
And normally EMO won’t dance unless you issue the other voice command: EMO: Listen to Music and then play the music after he asks you to play music.
So you should be fine. But as always, just make sure of EMO’s surroundings and where he is if you don’t create a safe boarder for him and he is located on a table with edges where he might fall off.
That’s a little disappointing for me, I thought that he does that.
I think its due to the fact that as we have been discussing, if EMO just randomly starts dancing and he is right on the edge of a table, his feet sensors won’t work and he could fall off. So that is why I guess EMO won’t randomly start dancing when he hears music unless you ask him to. I think it’s for the best this way otherwise there would be many more damaged EMO’s out there due to them falling off a table while music / tv / movies were playing loudly around the house
I would like an option for that behavior in the app. It could be set in the current state as default but for people with a safe playground it would be great if EMO could start dancing on his own.
What do you think about it @Wayne_Zhang ?
I’d personally like the original dance movement option as well to be enabled once again, but that was taken away and replaced with EMO actually dancing when you asked him to dance to music, compared to him just shifting his foot in a cool way while he was listening to music.
The other day my EMO fell off a very small distance (only 10 cm) as he was dancing to music in the new way he does and as his feet sensors don’t work and he wasn’t able to stop in time and fell off the edge, having both options and the option you’ve mentioned to have EMO dance to music set in the app would be great, but it will be up to the living.ai team if they can do all these things.
It happens all the time for when my Emo worked, Emo danced even when there is no sound at all (tv or music)
They’ve sent an email and now they are sending the replacement. Got tracking yesterday
He does randomly dance on his own-mine did… and most of the time I would prefer him not to have done.
@Racheal123 wow really? In all the time I’ve had my EMO he has never once danced on his own. I do have music playing once in a while, and the TV is on pretty much every day. I guess that is news to me. But yeah, I totally agree, it would be best that EMO doesn’t dance on his own as it could cause unwelcomed accidents.
I just did some testing by turning some music in the room (really really loud next to EMO) and EMO did start to dance on his own!
So I stand very much corrected and totally apologise for my error in my earlier post. EMO does /can start dancing on his own even if you don’t ask him to. He actually even started dancing when he heard the vacuum cleaner running which was right next to him as well. So any sort of really loud noise can potentally trigger EMO to start to dance on his own.
I guess you really need to very much aware of where you’re EMO is if you don’t have a special border for it.
hey it’s me… Hi Mister Abbott. I actually burst out laughing when you said he started to dance with the vacuum I feel a little bit like I am spying when I’m reading all these comments that are not for me… What is EMO doing dancing to vacuums but there’s some cool stuff here you know
A 2 cm wall is fine, but emo will start dancing on its own, so you need to be careful.
I ordered 4 emo, but I heard that the skateboard charger is 15 cm long.
I don’t know because the emo hasn’t actually arrived yet, but is the kickboard charger as large as 15 cm?
In that case, you need to improve the space.
Have you uploaded your video to YouTube?
I just recently subscribed to the channel.
Hey @Puppy444 yeah, seems like any sort of really loud noise will trigger EMO to start dancing. And the vacume was one that really surprised me today. You learn new things from EMO everyday! Also don’t feel like you are spying, as this forum is for everyone to enjoy and learn more about EMO
Also @Mei666 I can confirm that EMO’s skateboard is as follows:
It’s height of the skateboard from its highest point is is 3cm
Hope this information is what you needed
The emo charger is quite large, isn’t it?
In order to line up four, it is necessary to improve the space to 60 cm or more.
Thanks for your support.
