What does OS 4 mean?

OS 4 means “Operating System 4”. That means we are on our FOURTH rehash of the Cubelets firmware. Time flies when you’re building thousands and thousands of tiny robots!

OS 4 is different than our previous updates in that it completely re-writes the firmware from the ground up. We’ve been wanting to do this with Cubelets for a long time. This new firmware opens up a world of possibilities for Cubelets including future apps and expansions. Cubelets running OS 4 react faster to each other and remote control better when pairing with the Bluetooth Cubelet. Best of all, OS 4 gives us a more solid foundation on which to create new ways to use and interact with Cubelets both in the classroom and at home.

Do I need to buy a Bluetooth Cubelet to updated to OS 4?
Can all previously purchased Cubelets be updated to OS 4?
