>> ESTIMOTE STICKERS - SHRUNK DOWN iBEACON TECHNOLOGY
The myth is completely true - size really does matter!
has shrunk its Bluetooth beacon down to something you can wear - making the
iBeacons technology much more attractive and deployable. They have introduced
the concept of a "nearable" where you would attached the device and the object
could broadcast its location, motion and temperature.
They cover a couple of interesting use-cases in their
blog post, well worth
- Estimote is introducing the term nearable as an intelligent object linked
by a smart beacon with a rich SDK to the cloud. Estimote Stickers will be
pre-programmed with nearable-specific context and an upcoming new version
of our SDK with a higher level of abstraction.
They also provide an SDK to make developers who want to utilize the iBeacon
technology simpler - such as providing a tool that lets them classify objects
to implicitly declare the physical world rather than listening to UUID's and
using RSSI values to calculate distance.
Estimote is now accepting
pre-orders ($99 USD) for a Sticker Development Kit, yes please!
