Volume controls allow easy adjustment of RoboThespian's audio volume.
The four main buttons (1 - 4) can trigger any sequence (animation), or start any Control Function (behaviour of the robot).
A switch swaps the functions of these buttons to a second set of sequences or Control Functions.
- A Power button
- B Button function switch - (shown in default left position)
- C Laser pointer button
- C* Laser pointer beam direction (do not shine at or near eyes!)
- D Volume up
- E Volume down

Already setup to pair with RoboThespian. No need to pair with RoboThespian.
Even if the presenter goes into discovery mode, the robot will reconnect to it shortly after.
The four main buttons (1 - 4) can be setup to trigger any sequence (animation), or start any Control Function (behaviour of the robot).
The button function switch can be used to change the button functions to a different set of 4, (referred to internally as 5 - 8)
Please contact Engineered Arts for a bespoke setup and/or further details on customising yourself.
Button function switch
Two positions - left or right.
In left position buttons 1-4 are seen by RoboThespian as buttons 1-4.
In right position remaps the buttons as 5 - 8 allowing a different set of sequences / Control Functions.
- B Button function switch - (shown in optional right position)
Changing sequences triggered by controller (advanced)
If you would like to change the sequences that are triggered by button 1-4 (5-8) on the controller you can do this using the Settings panel in the IDE. These settings are read by the UserButtons control function.
Use the prefix seq: to play a sequence or cf: to start a Control Function (press again to stop)
Name Value BUTTON_1 seq:Finger Test - Arms to side BUTTON_2 seq:01-The Purpose BUTTON_3 cf:ShutUp BUTTON_4 seq:jaws BUTTON_5 cf:TellAStory BUTTON_6 cf:CopyTrackedUser BUTTON_7 cf:ShutUp BUTTON_8 cf:SingASong
Alternatively, if you would prefer Engineered Arts to change the sequences for you, we are happy to help, please contact us.
