TinyDuino / possible to do beaconing with the BLE ST tinyshield?
« Last post by mreinstein on March 16, 2018, 02:22:36 PM »
I'm wondering if it would be possible/hard to do beaconing for an indoor location system using https://tinycircuits.com/collections/communication/products/bluetooth-low-energy-tinyshield as the bluetooth radio.

I'd imagine there must be some way to scan for nearby bluetooth devices, read their rssi, and use that to triangulate where a given device is located. Does anyone have some code to do this?

General Discussion / Tinyscreen+ SerialUSB with libraries
« Last post by percramer on March 16, 2018, 10:29:18 AM »
Hi All,

is there a way to use libraries that need a normal serial object in combination with the serialusb of the tinyscreen+ ? Because i can't just go and change the source of each library.


General Discussion / Micro SD Documentation

    Could you verify the MicroSD pin documentation posted on you web site matches the hardware implementation?   I think I read that the CS data line in the SPI interface should be unique to the individual device and the shared data lines (MOSI, MISO, and SCLK) should be connected to the same pins of when using multiple SPI devices?  Looking at the Tiny Circuits Micro SD shield documentation, I noticed that pins 11 (labeled SCLK) and 13 (labeled MOSI) are swaped relative to the documentation for the Nordic BLE, BLE St, WiFi, and other communications shields in the Tiny Circuits store.  If the MicroSD documentation is correct, then I think it means the MicroSD shield is not compatible with the other SPI devices.

Sorry about that!  These are definitely not cancelled, just delayed a short bit.  We got swamped around Nov - Dec so we decided to push this off a little bit.  But we are very close to releasing these very soon, likely via a Kickstarter early next month. 

There will be a new processor board released (basically the TinyScreen+ without the screen), which will have a 32-bit SAMD ARM processor (essentially the Arduino Zero, but smaller), along with a whole new line of tiny boards (30+), which connect to the system via small 5-pin cables, allowing for a lot more flexibility with making miniature projects.  These will be lower cost, and also work with other boards, like a standard Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and most other standard microcontroller systems. 

Looking forward to getting these out soon, so keep watching.  We should be promoting this more over the next month as we lead up to the release.

Very cool to see on the Tiny Arcade!  Nice job with the port!

Late last year I read an announcement (probably in the blog) that you had plans to introduce a whole new batch of shields & other products to be released "shortly after the new year".  Now I can't even find that notice let alone all the new things.  What happened?  Delayed?  Canceled?  Any hints on what they are/were?
User Projects / Code Examples / Re: Hermes: Interactive LED Shoes!

A couple of friends and myself developed some shoes that light up when you walk!

Our original design included:
1x Adafruit Arduino FLORA
1x LSM303 FLORA Accelloremter
1x LPD8806 LED Strip (22xLEDs)
1x LiPo Battery 3.7v 1200mAh

Most of it encased in PlastiDip to prevent solder joints braking and hardware damage.

Here is a video we posted of how they turn out!

Open source code: https://github.com/cloudwalking/Hermes/

We are looking forward to replacing the Arduino FLORA with the TinyLily and will keep you updated on our progress!

I think you are really great, as well as your idea and design. I know there are not too many options of adult light up shoes, though there are a lot of choices for kids. Today when we are talking about the light up shoes, we are opt to those LED rechargeable products so they can be charged and keep lighting up.

NICE!  I like how you made the power pellets into firewalls, so instead of eating the GHOSTs you're merely protected from them.

Okay, changed the folder name from KOOKY_TA_V1_0 to just KOOKY. 

NOW it works.  Fun game, too!  Keep it up! ;D
