This is a short summary of what I learned while playing around with my Bangle.js Watch.
I managed to
- add an application to the Bangle.js (with
- send accelerometer data over Bluetoot Low Energy
- discover & connect to BLE devices with Node.js
- read accelerometer data with Node.js (coming from the watch)
Recently I got myself a treat: a Bangle.js Watch! ⌚️
It's a pretty awesome, open-source watch based on Espruino and Node.js, and much more! 🤓
Read about my experiments here especially for creating a mouse-watch app with Node.js and Bluetooth Low Energy!
Using an ESP8266 for IoT projects makes me go fast while prototyping.
The compact format is perfect for small DIY devices.
Wi-Fi connectivity is built-in, and it's super affordable.
The ESP8266 is a low-cost Wi-Fi microchip, with a full TCP/IP stack and microcontroller capability (wikipedia)
Time-lapses always fascinated me. So I wanted to create one on my own.
Had a spare Raspberry Pi Zero W catching dust, you can purchase one for ~ 25$ and the related Raspberry Pi Camera module for < 20$.
