Evo is an app-connected coding robot for the next generation of creators. The bot has regular app and firmware updates. To get the cool new features and content covered below, just open the Evo app and connect to your Evo. If you have an update available, a pop-up will appear.
2.1.2 APP UPDATE
May 12, 2018
Please note: the 2.1.2 update only affects the app experience when using Evo with Avenger Action Skins. Don’t have an Action Skin? Learn more here.
What’s better than friends? SUPER friends! Suit up with an Avenger Action Skin and test out the new Hero Interaction feature, added with the 2.1.2 Evo app update.
To experience Hero Interaction, you need two or more Evos and two or more Action Skins. Attach your skins, power on, and open the app. Once connected, navigate to the Drive screen. While in Drive, your Hero will scan the area and call out any other Avenger Action Skins—or enemies! When Iron Man detects Hulk, for example, he might say “Hey, Mean Green.” Hero Interaction uses Evo’s proximity sensors, so two skins need to be a few inches from each other for the feature to work. Give it a try, and let us know what you think in the comments below!
Also from the Drive screen, activate mighty #BuiltWithOzoBlockly power moves just for your Hero, plus voice and lights effects.

1.7 FIRMWARE UPDATE

Play with Evo’s sensors to trigger three tricks–Follow, Music, and Escape. Power Evo on and bond with the bot in Follow, as Evo follows your finger wherever you lead.
To switch between tricks, cover all four sensors. When Evo’s front lights all turn green, quickly let go. In Music, create songs simply by covering Evo’s sensors.
Cover all four sensors again to trigger Evo’s Escape trick and experiment all over again.
Teach Evo new tricks anytime with OzoBlockly. Drag and drop colorful blocks of code to write an OzoBlockly program that makes Evo chase the cat or own an obstacle course. Then load the code just by holding your coding robot up to your screen!

Once you have your pack, pull out your markers, power on your Evo, and open the Evo app. As you complete the pack and learn new color codes, you’ll earn stars in the app!
