Two nights ago (CEST) Wire announced a major update to Wire Pod on Discord:
Wire posted the following on Discord a few hours ago
I have a small Linux box in NUC style that works as my Wire-Pod but idles most of the time, since it is way more powerful than a RasPi.
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.
There are a number of updates for the open source Escape Pod solution that Wire provided using the open sourced libraries for Chipper and Vector cloud.
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.
