The complete Vector infrastructure, run by Digital Dream Labs, is still offline without any hint when it will come back again – or ever. Multiple “by the end of this weeks” have gone by without …
That’s what DDL representatives said about when the servers will come back up again. That was last week
It’s now almost three weeks that nearly all Digital Dream Labs servers are offline. We remember: DDL representatives claimed that this was a “scheduled maintenance”. Let’s all have a hearty laugh at that nonsense. A …
I am coming out of hiatus for a post. In the months since I stopped writing about Vector because of frustration about the continued unprofessionalism and lack of updates from that scam factory Digital Dream Labs.
Originally this page was set up to write about coding and expanding Vector the robot, especially with OSKR, the Open Source Kit For Robots that Digital Dream Labs financed via that infamous Kickstarter campaign.
What I am talking about? A post from DDL CEO (after all this time and the posts seen from him I can only assume this means “Chief Entertainment Officer) in the official Facebook group (and, yes despite booting all critical voices and all customers asking for help there are still people in there) lead to home robot community members rolling on the floor, laughing
We already know that the support at Digital Dream Labs is bad. Since they fired all support people and especially Robbie Bussard it got worse.
Digital Dream Labs went into complete radio silence some weeks ago (again). The only thing they post are meaningless PR posts about valentine’s day or ramadan in their Facebook group, where a lot of people are not able to read them because their were booted from that group for no reasons other than asking questions.
… then they obviously again have no clue what they are doing. An EORI number is a euopean customs number. Businesses and companies doing import and export need one.
We already learned from former Digital Dream Labs employees how they were not paid for months. In addition to that it became quite clear in the past years that the management done by the …
User leodemacondo presents Cozmars on Thingiverse, his version of an open source Cozmo (or Vector) -like robot.
We all remember when DDL announced the opening of their repair center.
vectorx is a new project by fforchino on Github to add new functionality to 1st generation Vectors tethered to a Wire-Pod.
I saw multiple people complaining online in different places that they have sent in their 1st generation vectors to SSL’s “official” repair center in the USA and now there is no feedback
It’s now weeks after the first reported account server problems problems and not only is there still no official statement about the those problems (only a misleading email by Hanchar), there are more and more people reporting them
Two nights ago (CEST) Wire announced a major update to Wire Pod on Discord:
Wire posted the following on Discord a few hours ago
Two years ago Daryl Stultz created a contribution for Node-RED to interface with Vector. For those that are unfamiliar with Node-RED: It is a node.js based workflow solution that is able to interface lots of sources together to create workflow, mostly used for example in home automation, but also in industrial production workflows.
Now it’s a week since the problems with their cloud service regarding voice commands with Vector became obvious because of more and more posts by users that no longer have a lifetime or subscription, and still there is no official statement on that
While there still is no official statement on DDL’s ongoing Vector service outages and the account mixups, one user got an email by DDL CEO Jacob Hanchar.
