So I am almost ashamed to ask this but:

How do you make the KIPR Link beep? We used beep() in the past and while that's still there all it does is make the screen flash, which is supported by Botball documentation. The KIPR Link manual introduces a tone(frequency, length) function but that won't compile.

While I'm sure the create's buzzer could be used, for designs that only use the Link an audible beep is often necessary when the screen isn't accessible.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance :)

Hi Abdullah,

This is a limitation of the Link's current firmware. We hope to address this issue in a coming firmware update. The Link's development was somewhat rushed, and audio was a non-vital feature that could be addressed in software, so it was postponed. Let me know if you need any other information or have any other questions.

If that assumption is correct, there should be some sample code for the camera in the workshop slides, which I think includes info on blob size. I will lookup the slide number when I have a moment and get back to you.
