Blebricks: istant prototyping platform for IoT, smart sensors and RFID
Internet of Things is for everyone, finally.
Blebricks are smart bricks allowing anybody to create new Wi-Fi devices. Thanks to our patented technology, simple and fast, no electronics or programming skills are required.
How it works?
Each Blebrick features a special function among a wide range of sensors and actuators such as motion sensors, environmental sensors, CO2 sensors, infrared sensors, air quality sensors – just to mention a few of them.
Blebricks are able to auto-configure when connected to each other and your prototype is ready in less than a minute!
You can see sensors data and interact with them locally – with your smartphone – through our MakeApp for Android devices.
Moreover, you can create your own app with MIT App Inventor.
Finally, you can interact with your Blebricks wherever you are, by simply connecting them to Internet and accessing to Bricksboard.
The key advantage of such an innovative technology is a massive reduction (even more than 90%) in development time and costs from concept to production.
In addition, the ultra-low power design makes Blebricks suitable for the development of battery-powered and wearable devices.
The modular design of Blebricks let us offer an optimized service for product industrialization (i.e. creating a more compact, performant, reliable and cost effective solution starting from the proto version): find out our Fast Route to Production!
BLUETOOTH® LOW ENERGY
Remote connectivity: you can directly connect to Internet with SFX - Sigfox (or NBT-NBIOT coming soon). Thanks to Brickboard you can control your sensors everywhere.
Blebricks connect to Internet with Gateway or your smartphone (coming soon)
The BLE-B is a smart device with Bluetooth® Low Energy communication and self-configuration, allowing it to take advantage of any feature coming from the Blebricks it is connected to, whether sensors, actuators or communication modules with direct connection to the Internet (e.g. LP-WAN modules).
The BLE-B can be configured with our Software Suite (including on line apps and tools). It is able to notifying the smartphone in case of polluted air, advising when plants need some water or triggering a series of events to prove your innovative concept, just in a moment!
Moreover, the BLE-B features extra functions such as data logger, indoor localization and RTLS, low power mode, over-the-air firmware update and many others, making it a one of a kind device, and definitely a step ahead the other rapid prototyping platforms and beacons available on the market.
Good news for smart automation addicted: our BLE-B is compatible with the IFTTT service (If This Then That) as well, allowing automation of all kinds of smart devices available on the market. The IFTTT capabilities range from opening an app or turning on a device, to full home automation management (lighting, heating and appliances) just to name a few.
Finally yet importantly, our BLE5-B is the Bluetooth® 5.0 version of the BLE-B, featuring a massive communication range extension, advertising throughput and transmission speed.
