It looks great! Similar to DinoMite, but less clunky. I just wish I would have paid better attention in my german class in high school.  ;D
There's interesting info in another thread about Jetta releasing a PDK in september too.
I may not sell Cleo after all!

The program works allready, but there are some lines of code we want to rewrite before we release the tool. If you can't wait, you can send us a mail (pleopatra@dfki.de) and we will send you a first preview version in about a week.

I'm content to wait for the tested version (oh and thank you for an English version, translators only get you so far :P) it does sound like it has a few more features than Dinomite :) Definitely looking forward to it :)

Yes, it does have some new features: You can now record audio files and play them on your computer immediatly after recording. (With the API you can also save them as wav-Files), you can take pictures with the build in camera and display them on the computer (without putting the sd card in your computer) and save them as bmp-File (using the API) and the greates thing: your Pleo can twitter about his feelings now (like http://www.twitter.com/Pleopatra) unfortunality only in german (yet).

Pleopatra Tools (and the API) is open source, so you can expand it and create your own apps to control your pleo.

Dr. Mel is the evil mad scientist from the Bob the Pleo comic strip.  Since his goal is to destroy all pleos . . .

Question:  for the twitter page, can you use an existing one, since I'm a web craze person, and I want to make a twitter page for my pleo.  But I wouldn't want to get one and then have to get a brand new one for this tool to work.

Yeah im curious about the twitter feature too, does anyone know if the pleo just leaves an emoticon or if the software actually interprets pleos mood and puts together a micro blog?

you can use an existing account, or you can create a new, as you can see here: http://www.dfki.de/pleopatra/screens/twitter.jpg you just have to enter a username and a password.

@justbede: pleo tools react on changing sensor, e.g. if pleo eats he will twitter "mhhh, taste good" or something like this, if you shake him around he will say sth like "i'm feeling sick". at the moment the pleopatra tools only speaks german, but its no problem to change the language to english (an exmaple twitter account can be found here: http://twitter.com/Pleopatra)

I had a look and its a great idea its actually surprising now looking back that no one thought to make this feature earlier. Is there any chance in the future that we could gain access to the responses given for different sensory feedback so as to customise them? eg a tap on the back would result in a "someones not worried about my paintwork" keep up the great work.

yes, that's allready possible now! each "trigger" (e.g. a sensor) has a txt-file with some tweets, the program chosse one of them (random) an send it to twitter. so if you want to customise the tweets you just have to change the txt-files

you can also add your own triggers, because the software is open source

Thats a really nice and intuative way of doing it, just a couple of questions (sorry:p). Does pleo have to be constantly connected to a computer to tweet or does he some how save the data for uploading later? Thumbs up for being open source 8)

yes, pleo have to be connected and we think it's the idea of twitter to send real time messages. until the pdk (pleo development kit) isn't published it won't be possible to control pleo while he isn't connected to a pc

http://pleopatratools.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/pleopatratools/  :)
is the link which gets you into the file download area.
Beware though this is shaky s/w at best. I received it via email and the author, Christoph cautions against "rookie" :P use. But
he is looking for help in cleaning and updating it. ^-^

And it is great news Blackhalflife. Thank you!
