Blidgets is a tiny, Web browser programmable always-on platform for easy creation of smart objects and environments. It was designed and created by Norman Pohl and myself at the University of Stuttgart.
The key features are:
- Tiny always-on device (25x25x6mm)
- Runs a year on a coin-cell battery
- Wireless connection via Bluetooth LE
- 18 GPIO ports
- Web programmable
- Stack- and chainable
The current ecosystem of stackable modules includes a joystick, button, accelerometer, LiPo power module, notification module, light sensor and multiple adapters for connecting modules from other Rapid Prototyping platforms such as .NET Gadgeteer or Xadow.
We provide a Smart Hub with web based interface for controlling and mashing up many Blidgets and arbitrary other devices by just creating a few lines of Java-Script code.
