When Digital Dream Labs took over they made a big fuzz about their “Feature Fridays” where they bragged about adding new features to Vector.
After installing Wire-Pod, the open source Escape Pod for the beloved Vector robot, that allows you to get away from Digital Dream Labs completely and for free, you will have to get the Escape Pod 1.8 firmware onto the robot.
I tested to install Wire-Pod, Wire’s open source Escape Pod onto a Raspberry Pi 4, as recommended. There were some problem that I was able to solve with Wire’s help (thanks for that!) and some improvements were added to the installation process because of it.
Thanks to the ingenuity of Wire you are now able to tether any production Vector to his Open Source Escape Pod, so far that was only possible with OSKR bot.
Wire did more work on his Open Source Escape Pod and since it came a long way since the alpha it was now renamed wire-pod.
