      Awesome update! Thanks guys!

    2. Creator David Scarlett on December 5, 2013

      Nevermind, simply forgot to update to the newest firmware.

    3. Creator David Scarlett on December 5, 2013

      My BERO doesn't seem to work with the new app update. It connects, but I can't get it to move anymore.

    4. Creator Jeffrey Sue on November 8, 2013

      Congratulations! I just received a marketing email from ThinkGeek and they're carrying BERO.

    5. Creator Irawan on August 28, 2013

      @BERO: I sent you message regarding defect Robot.

    6. Creator Reality Robotics Limited on August 8, 2013

      The power connector is a standard micro USB connector. Its nothing special.

    7. Creator Reality Robotics Limited on August 8, 2013

      The sounds can be copied to the SD card from the firmware update and they cab be triggered in the .CSV files.

    8. Creator Reality Robotics Limited on August 8, 2013

      We will post the iOS source code after a few tweaks.

    9. Creator Reality Robotics Limited on August 8, 2013

      Music files must be copied to the SD card and they must be in .WAV file format and 8bit rate with 8k sample rate. They are then triggered in the MD1 to MD8 .CSV files found on the SD card. On the APP there are MD1 to MD8 buttons that trigger the playback of these .CSV files.

      i finally got my BERO with IOS apps. But how can I play music with BERO??

    11. Creator Rick Pannen on August 5, 2013

      Finally got mine :) - I'd really like to have the source for the iOS app to improve it.

    12. Creator David Scarlett on August 2, 2013

      OK, so the update works with iOS versions, but seems to missing some of the sounds from previous versions without going in there and adding them manually.

    13. Creator Adam on August 2, 2013

      Bero isn't working with iOS7 beta 4, so please don't update! Under iOS6 it works fine.

    14. Creator David Scarlett on August 1, 2013

      You can use any droid adapter power cord I'm sure. I know it sucks that it didn't come, but in the meantime that could be a temp solution.

    15. Creator AllenR (deleted) on August 1, 2013

      That is "power cord was missing".

    16. Creator AllenR (deleted) on August 1, 2013

      I got my BERO yesterday. The box was half ripped open, the BERO and instruction sheet were there, but the power cord was mission. How to I get another one? The thing isn't much good without one.

    17. Creator David Scarlett on August 1, 2013

      Does our iOS BEROs have the same firmware as the Android BEROs? If not, can we download the same update to use on the iOS version?

    18. Creator David Scarlett on August 1, 2013

      Received my BERO today and it is great. I do have a few concerns though. First, I don't think the infrared optical is working as he still bumps into things. Second, as mentioned by Inquisitioner and Roger, dance mode doesn't seem to work. I tried playing background music as well, no luck. Is this a possible firmware fix?

    19. Creator Roger Manning on July 31, 2013

      Received my bero too, what an excellent bit of kit, well worth the wait.
      Kids love him.
      Only issue is the dance mode does nothing, same as inquisitioner.

    20. Creator Inquisitioner on July 30, 2013

      Everything seems to be working fine, except trying to use dance, when I press that tab on the app nothing happens with the app nor with my BERO. I have an 4S with latest iOS & up to date app.

    21. Creator Inquisitioner on July 30, 2013

      Just got my bero iOS, woohooo.

    22. Creator David Scarlett on July 19, 2013

      Has shipping began yet?

    23. Creator David Scarlett on July 15, 2013

      Looks like the BERO app is now in the App Store.

    24. Creator Lee Friedman on June 30, 2013

      Any update on the Bero Gold? When might those start shipping. Any updates?

    25. Creator David Scarlett on June 28, 2013

      East Chang,

      All of the people who have an iOS device is waiting for their BERO. We should have them soon hopefully.

    30. Creator Michael Layman on May 31, 2013

      Funding this lil toy way the worst idea I have had in a long time. 6 months after Christmas and still nothing for IOS systems!!!

    31. Creator Alan on May 10, 2013

      @Michel I have the same issue with no response. I would be happy with a mod/fix or a new shell.

    32. Creator Michel on May 1, 2013

      My Samsung Galaxy S2 is nearly unable to communicate with my BERO BLING.
      I don't find any solution anywhere. The betherobot.com web site is nearly 'dead' (2011, Home 'Now on Kickstarter', no Support, 'Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text...' Update, inexistent Community...).
      Are you still alive?

    33. Creator Duky on April 27, 2013

      Hi,

      Any news on firmware update ?

    34. Creator Low Choong Leng on April 23, 2013

      Shipping for IOS version started?

    35. Creator David Scarlett on April 8, 2013

      Any good news?

    36. Creator Parisri on April 1, 2013

      Just received BERO today.
      But I don't received the USB adapter, DVD. Please sent it to me.
      Thanks
      PS. The cable chain to move the robot has a defect.
      Do you have the replacement of the cable chain ?

    37. Creator Alan on March 28, 2013

      I have one of the Bling editions, and the range is only 3-5 ft, I've tested with several different Android phones -- is there anyway to improve this? I know the metal coating will block some of radio signal, but this is more then I expected. Is there a mod to move the antenna external? Or use the metal coating as the antenna? -- Or would it be possible to get a different mold with out the metal coating? But still retain all the functions (side to side movement)

    38. Creator David Scarlett on March 18, 2013

      Today should be the 7th business day. Let's hope Apple gave them a response.

    39. Creator Parisri on March 16, 2013
