You have a Thymio? Upgrade it and make it Wireless!

The good news about Wireless Thymio is that it is retro-compatible! If you have a Thymio and want to free it from its USB cable, you just need a DIY wireless kit containing:

A module A dongle User manuals and sticker

For your Thymio to go Wireless, you will have to do two things:

  1. Upgrade the firwmare of your Thymio with the firmware V9 or above
  2. Only after the upgrade, open your Thymio, solder the module and close the robot again

The following video shows you how to perform this manipulation.
