1. File system optimization
2. Bug fixes and some adjustments
– Fixed an issue where EMO could miss doing some morning errands.
– Other bug fixes.
– Changed EMO sleep start time from 12pm to 10pm.
In the past few months, our team has been busy and excited to design and develop a new charger for EMO – Home Station, so that EMO can go back to charge itself when the battery is low.

3a. Set up
Your Home Station will be shipped in two parts. Please assemble them as shown below.

3b. Connection
Turn on EMO and bring it close to the Home Station. Five seconds after you touching the button, the Home Station will play an animation and become available for connection, and EMO will automatically search and connect to the Home Station.

3c. Wi-Fi Setup and Upgrade
· EMO will automatically send Wi-Fi settings to Home Station after connecting to it. You can also manually tap the “Sync” button in the app to have EMO send Wi-Fi settings to Home Station.
· You can say “update your home station” to EMO to start the Home Station update. You can also tap the update button in the app (when an update is available).

3d. Go home and go out
· You can say the command “go home” or “go back to your charger” to get EMO back to the Home Station.
· EMO will automatically return to the Home Station when his battery is low.
· You can say the command “go off your charger” or “go off home station” to ask EMO to go off the Home Station.
· EMO will walk off the Home Station by himself when the battery is full and he wants to. He won’t do this for two hours after starting charging.

3e. Animations
You can tap the touch button on the Home Station to switch animations.

2. Magic show
EMO has become a magician. Say “show your magic” to him and he will swing his magic wand and conjure up to 100 things.

3. EMO can get sick:(
During the year, if it rains or snows, or if the temperature is too low or too high, EMO can get sick. During that time he would appear uncomfortable and not do much of what he would normally do. But your care such as petting or encouraging words will make him recover faster.

Say “Happy Halloween”, but don’t be intimidated by EMO:p And as Halloween is coming, don’t forget to dress up for EMO.
