It must be "cabin fever" setting in. I went ahead and ordered an iRobot Create 2 robot. Nothing against the Activity Bot, just needed something a little larger and affordable. I have a couple of Activity Bots, in a box somewhere.
Initially I will be using the Activity Board WX with the WX WiFi module. And I will be using SimpleIDE to program it. So far I have determined that the only way to access the WiFi part is by using SimpleIDE. Not sure, but I think flexGUI cannot access the WiFi part for programming the Activity Board WX, like I said, not sure about that part.
I was also thinking about the P2, and if that could be used to control the Create 2. The latest P2 Eval board does not seem to be setup for that, no WiFi, no easy way to power it using 6V-26V power, no easy way to add different sensors and peripherals. It would be nice if there was a robotics P2 eval board, I would imagine that somewhere along the line Parallax will be creating an Activity Board WX with the P2, for the Activity Bot.
