BATTERY INFORMATION
Installing or changing batteries in MiP™:
1. To change the batteries, carefully lay MiP™ on its front. Do not place MiP™ where it could
easily fall. MiP™ requires 4 x “AAA” size alkaline batteries (not included).
2. Using a Phillips screwdriver (not included) remove the screws on the battery compartment
cover located on the back of the robot.
3. Insert the batteries according to the diagram. Ensure that the positive and negative polarities
match the illustrations inside the battery compartment.
4. Replace the battery compartment cover and tighten screws using the screwdriver. Do not
over-tighten.
IMPORTANT BATTERY INFORMATION:
• Use only fresh batteries of the required size and
recommended type.
• Do not mix old and new batteries, different types
of batteries [standard (Carbon-Zinc), Alkaline
or rechargeable] or rechargeable batteries of
different capacities.
• Remove rechargeable batteries from the toy
before recharging them.
• Rechargeable batteries are only to be charged
under adult supervision.
• Please respect the correct polarity, (+) and (-).
• Do not try to recharge non-rechargeable batteries.
• Do not throw batteries into fire.
• Replace all batteries of the same type/brand at
the same time.
• The supply terminals are not to be short-circuited.
MiP™ Battery Diagram/Installation
• Remove exhausted batteries from the toy.
• Batteries should be replaced by adults.
• Remove batteries if the toy is not going to be played with for some time.
LOW BATTERY INDICATORS:
When the batteries grow weak, MiP™ will move very slowly and easily fall down while moving
or turning. When this occurs, power OFF and replace all batteries.
NOTE: You will know when MiP™’s batteries are nearly depleted because it will make a low
battery indication sound and then power off. You can also see current battery levels via the
MiP™ App.

GETTING STARTED
(1) With the batteries inserted, locate the power switch
on its back and activate MiP™ by toggling it to ON.
(2) Carefully place MiP™ upright on its wheels on a flat
and smooth surface, away from edges and obstacles.
On successful balancing, you should feel traction in its
wheels. At this point, let go and MiP™ will stand on its
own with slight movements to correct its balance.

Off - On
MiP™ has several different modes that can be activated. Along with its own
unique vocabulary, MiP™ will make a wide range of sounds to express itself
regarding its current action, mode, or input received. To access the different
modes, pick MiP™ up and turn its right or left wheel. The LED Mode Indicator
will change color to indicate its current mode. Note that these modes are in a
fixed order, therefore, you can turn the wheel clockwise or counter-clockwise
to go up and down the list of modes.

Basic Commands – All Modes
Sound Detection
Various MiP™ actions can be performed by clapping, which will activate its sound detection.
For instance, to have MiP™ repeat a Trick Mode routine, you can clap twice.
Stop/Cancel
You can cancel any action MiP™ is currently performing by picking it up and tilting, then placing
MiP™ back down vertically. To reactivate the mode/action MiP™ was performing prior to the
Stop/Cancel command, clap twice.
Falling
Should MiP™ fall, it will make a sad sound. To get moving again, place it upright and it will start
balancing then wait for new commands, whilst in its previous mode.

and
MODES
Stack Modes
Modes
MiP™ Mode (Default)
The default mode MiP™ is in, upon start up. In this mode, MiP™ will detect hand gestures,
responds to claps and shakes.
Hand Gesture Control - Forward
Guide MiP™ forward by holding your hand in front of MiP™, then dip and pull your hand away from
MiP™ to steer it forward.
Hand Gesture Control – Backward
Guide MiP™ backwards by holding your hand in front of MiP™, then dip and push your hand towards
MiP™ to steer it backwards.

Stack Mode (Pink)
For this mode, first attach the tray accessory to MiP™ as shown in the
diagram. Carefully place MiP™ on a large, flat surface and let it balance.
MiP™ will now start a countdown! You will have only a few seconds to stack
a heavy object or many light objects on top of the tray. If it can balance
correctly, MiP™ will add additional time for you to stack. If you fail to reset
the timer and the clock runs out, MiP™ spins around, tossing all the stacked
items off the tray. See how much you can stack before the time runs out!
Stacking Tray
If you want to stack without the timer, use the Stop/Cancel command (pg 5).
After MiP™ has started balancing, you are free to stack as much as you
want without a time limit. To reactivate the timer, clap twice.
NOTE: Do not place open liquid containers on the tray.
Do not place anything too heavy on the tray.

MODES
Cage
and
Trick Modes
Cage Mode (White)
Stop MiP™ from escaping your clutches by cutting off its escape routes. Place your hand in front
of MiP’s eyes to block its path (Hand Gesture Control - Stop). MiP™ will move faster as the game
progresses. MiP™ will make victory sounds if it is able to escape. To restart the game, clap twice.
Trick Mode (Red)
Using hand gesture controls, you can have MiP™ memorize up to 50 separate movements that
you command. To do so:
1. Select Tricks Mode, then place MiP™ on a large flat surface and let it balance.
2. Wait for MiP™’s LED Mode Indicator to flash RED, then give a hand gesture command. To
indicate it has ‘read’ the command, MiP™ will say “OK” and its eyes will light up indicating
command has been entered.
3. Continue adding additional commands up the limit of 50.
4. To execute the trick, clap twice. MiP™ will repeat the most recent series of commands
programmed.
To enter a new series of commands, quickly clap three times. Alternatively, you can also change
the mode, then repeat step 1. MiP™ is now ready to learn a new routine.

TRICK: You can also use this method to deliver objects to people as well. Follow steps 1-3, then
pick MiP™ up and attach the tray accessory. Place MiP™ down so it is balancing, then
place the object you want to deliver on the tray. Clap twice to execute the command.

Roam, Dance,
and
MODES
Sleep Modes
Roam Mode (Yellow)
MiP™ will explore its environment and roam freely. It will acknowledge obstacles that it can see
with its IR Sensors, stop and turn away from them. MiP™ will exit Roam Mode after three minutes
or if it falls. Should MiP™ get stuck on a small obstacle below its IR Sensor and is not repositioned
by you, MiP™ will exit the mode.
Object detection
As MiP™ moves around, it will detect objects in range, directly in front of it. Upon detection, MiP™ will
make a sound, turn and drive in another direction. Note that MiP™ does not have edge detection, so do
not allow it to roam freely in an area with edges from which it could fall.
NOTE: MiP™ cannot detect obstacles below the range of its IR Sensor (located above the eyes),
to the side, or from behind.
Dance Mode - (Turquoise)
MiP™ will perform dance routines by moving around and dancing to music.
NOTE: MiP™ moves around during dance routines. Ensure the surrounding area is free from
obstacles and edges.
Track Mode - (Orange)
MiP™ will track and follow your hand gestures. Hold your hand in front of MiP™ until it makes a
low beep tracking sound then guide MiP™ around by moving your hand slowly in any direction.
MiP™ will track forwards, backwards, left and right movements. Note: MiP™ is more accurate
at tracking slower movements.
Sleep Mode
If MiP™ is left for approximately 10 minutes, it will enter Sleep Mode after making a sound. The
LED Mood Indicator will turn off along with object detection, and the unit will no longer balance
and drop to a prone position.
To wake MiP™ from Sleep Mode, turn it OFF for 10 seconds and then ON again using the Power
Switch located on the back.
NOTE: If you are done playing with MiP™, turn it off using the power switch located on the back.

Q&A and Product Support
If you are experiencing difficulties with MiP™, use this troubleshooting guide or visit
www.wowweezone.com for further support.
Q:
My MiP™ is not responding to my hand gesture commands…
A:
Make sure you are giving gestures in front of MiP™s IR Sensors, located above its eyes. Note
that MiP™ cannot detect hand gestures from the side or from behind.
Q:
My MiP™ has trouble performing turns and is moving too slowly…
A:
Make sure there is no dirt or fibers trapped around the wheels. If there is, carefully remove the
debris (adult supervision required). If MiP™ still moves slowly, try replacing the 4 x “AAA” size
alkaline batteries.
Q:
My MiP™ cannot detect objects and obstacles...
A:
Try resetting MiP™ by turning it Off for a few seconds and then On again using the power
switch located on the back. Note that MiP™’s IR Sensors are based on reflection. It can see
highly reflective surfaces, such as white walls or mirrors more easily and from greater distances
than matte or black surfaces.
