This is to do with how Edison stores and runs barcode programs, Edison has 2 sections of memory that contain programs: the user space and the barcode space.
Edison’s barcode programs are permanently stored in his barcode space.
When Edison is turned on the default behaviour for the triangle button is set to run a program from the user space. Running Edison over a barcode points the triangle button at the correct section of the barcode memory space. Turning Edison on and off resets the triangle back to the user space.
This is intended behaviour programmed into a tiny section of Edison called the boot loader, This is the only bit of Edison’s code which does not get changed when you update his firmware.

Heads up

The Australian Federal Parliament has passed a law that extends goods and services tax (GST) to low value imports of physical goods imported by consumers from 1 July 2018.

This means that all customers purchasing Edison robots and accessories with an Australian shipping address must now pay GST. The GST will be automatically added to your purchase and show as a line item on your invoice.

We've detected that you are in Australia, so we wanted to let you know that we have changed your settings to view our Australian site, which displays GST inclusive pricing.
