Nabaztag Dashboard Widget

from how-to-hide-a-corpse-on-federal-land.com

THIS PAGE IS OUTDATED. PLEASE GO TO nabwidget.com

This widget controls your very own Nabaztag wi-fi bunny, or that of someone else if they give you their API serial number and Token

The first release (v1.0) appears to be stable, but some inconsistencies have been found when an invalid serial or token are used. To get your very own token so you can control your rabbit, go to the Nabaztag API page and sign up for one. You will also need to authorize reception of external events.

control and options

controls: on the front of the widget are the ear buttons, a text-to-speech window, and a "go" button to send your text

on the back of the widget, you will need to enter your serial number and your token. You have the options to control:

usage

click on an ear button to move an ear. enter some text and hit "go" to speak

As this is my first dashboard widget, there may be a few bugs I haven't found, but I think I tested most condidions.

credit

I got the idea for this widget after seeing Nyami's Widget It is the first widget out there, and works with the Yahoo widget engine, so PC users can use it nicely.

I borrowed the images from Nyami's widget, but had to re-code everything except the regexp statements (regexp is not my forte) because apple's dashboard uses different calls than the yahoo engine. Special props to Nyami, though.

future plans

Well, I have the calls for the LEDs, but I should put in the full RGB LEDs so that I can simulate any LED colour. Being able to put in choreography would be nice, but I imagine it would take me quite a while to put that together.
