Makers, developers and hobbyists that are looking for a programmable Bluetooth module for their project may be interested in a new device called THINGY that has been developed by 2333 Designs.
THINGY is Arduino platform compatible and has been created to assist in making your day to day life run smoother by solving life’s simplest issues, says its creators. Check out the video below to learn more about the Bluetooth THINGY module.
“We have all said it a 100 times, if we only had an App to tell us if our garage door is open late at night. Or tell us if the kids are in the cabinet with the chemicals or medicine. How about a water sensor underneath the dishwasher, and a simple message sent to your phone…”Dude your dishwashers leaking”. Or a water sump pump level detector, a simple “Water Level Too High” message pops up on your phone.
What about….find your keys, remote control, or wife? Whatever you have misplaced. How about theft device on your bike? Or on your alcohol in the house? You come home and the device reports that someone has been having a FIREBALL party without you! The term is BUSTED for your kids.
So to solve life’s challenges we invented THINGY. This amazing device has the ability to reprogram itself internally, to totally change its personalty and provide new features or perform new tasks in a one chip solution. The available free App will do that for you.
We took the design and turned it into 100’s or 1000’s of applications that are based on the fundamental Bluetooth LE Technology from Cypress Semiconductor. Then we added some other electronic components and made one heck of device that can make our lives run a little smoother, have a little peace of mind, and yes a little swag is always good.”
