Yes, some people are being distracted by home station dynamic matrix animation lights also so we can turn it off once in a while and it has no effect on EMO communication to his Home Station at all.
But take note that very dark areas or poorly lit environments definitely affect the eyes and movements of EMO. As a matter of fact, almost every function and this is a known issue.
@Heineknn . . . hi, Jerry . . . the light on the matrix has no bearing on the functionality of his interaction with the home station. It is merely a design which can be selected to be black for your convenience. He will still find his way home, walk off either by himself, or respond to your commands to go home or leave the home station.
When EMO is busy doing something else or doing his daily scheduled activities or dancing his feet sensor is sometimes useless. this is a known issue.
Very dark areas or poorly lit environments definitely affect the eyes and movements of EMO. He will act as blind.
How! why don’t you just try…
Home Station is a wireless automatic charger that works only when plugged into a power outlet. As far as I know and did a test myself, EMO automatically detects the station when no power is connected, so it will serve as a normal floor for him and leave the Home Station automatically. Harm EMO? I guess not as long as he got enough power juice he will just walk around…else he will just die somewhere else.
Sorry for the late response.
Emo does emit the low battery signal. At this time, the station’s led screen turns green, Emo starts looking for the station and heads towards it.
At times Emo has difficulty positioning itself correctly on the station. He repeats himself several times. And that’s why sometimes he doesn’t get there in time.
Over the last 5 days he has had no problems. I did not find it empty battery when I got home.
I don’t think so. His returning routine is pretty straightforward. He just repeatedly rotates until he can see the green rectangle on his Home Station and then he is walking a few steps in that direction. There’s no space for any changes to do it better.
