  1. Looking forward to hearing what you liked best. We're also starting to compile articles for our next issue, so if you want to pitch an idea or proposal send me a PM!

    Powered Up - A tear down...

    @Tcm0 not at this moment, but the expectation is that it will in a future update
  3. The EV3 doesn't use BLE either, but "standard" Bluetooth.

    LEGO Education SPIKE Prime

    Yes. An email was sent out to everyone who had pre-ordered SPIKE Prime explaining that the product launch has been delayed to 2020 According to that email: At LEGO Education, we hold ourselves to an exceptionally high standard for quality in everything we do and we want to create the biggest possible impact on the students learning with our products. With that in mind, we’ve decided to adjust the expected launch of SPIKE Prime to early 2020 to ensure the new product meets that high bar.
  5. Bummer! That would be a feature request then. Since @Lok24 says it can be achieved with a raspberry (a link would be cool, pictures even cooler!) could this also be implemented in the W10 program?

    Using what software? The Powered Up app won't allow it.

    Have you confirmed that? I was under the impression the possibility to update the firmware on the WeDo 2.0 hub made it impossible for that hub to recognise and deal with components that were developed later

    Have you updated to the latest version? Stability has improved over time...

    You are right in part. The app needs to do the connecting, bit a lot of people se to default to the old way of doing think and try to connect to the hub from the BT config screen of their OS. If that happens there may be a conflict between the OS trying to connect at the same time as the app, resulting in interference which makes it difficult or even impossible to successfully pair the hub with the app. I've seen this happen in so many cases it has become a kind of "have you turned it off and on again" kind of mantra.

    I am confused. You can write a python program but can't check the BT connection on your Windows computer Just open your BT connections from the configuration panel and check if the hub is listed (probably with its MAC address). Right click and choose forget device.

    @Lok24 the app checks if BT is enabled. It doesn't check if the hub has been paired previously to some other program. I don't know how Cosmik's or your program work, I only know that making sure you haven't connected to the hub through the Windows BT connection window is a solution that has worked numerous times for different Powered Up hubs (WeDo and Boost). It is one of the ways to exclude there is a problem with interference.

    Have you made sure the hub is not connecting (or connected) through the BT config panel of Windows itself? If Windows pairs first, the app can't connect to the hub.

    I don't understand your question. I have the Boost app on my Windows 10 laptop and it works perfectly with all of my Boost hubs. You need to make sure you have a BLE compatible bluetooth chip ir bluetooth dongle, otherwise the app won't be able to connect to your hub(s).

    There is a Windows 10 app for Boost. There is no Windows app for Powered Up.

    New developments on the Powered Up front. The app has been updated to include new functionality and allow for more elements to be connected to the hub:
