You can control your Bits wirelessly with the inseparable wireless receiver & wireless transmitter pair. The wireless receiver decodes the information that’s sent to it from the wireless transmitter and sends it out of the bitSnap to create an action (such as when your RC car moves in the direction you sent it in).
This update on the w11 wireless receiver allows for multiple wireless inventions in the same space, making it ideal for schools and makerspaces. The wireless Bits are able to communicate on 5 transmission channels, like a walkie-talkie. They just need to be set to the same channel (labeled a, b, c, d, and e) in order to talk to each other.
A single transmitter can send its signal to multiple receivers on the same transmission channel. However, multiple transmitters can’t send their signal to the same receiver. The 5 transmission channels allow for up to 5 transmitter/receiver pairs to be used in the same vicinity, which can reach a distance of 100 feet indoors!
