You can build your own wireless colour sensor in 5 seconds using Blebricks: just stack the BLE-B, the RPS and the RGB with the help of a horizontal mounting base.
OTA Firmware Update
The Over The Air Firmware Update feature allows you to always keep your BLE-B up-to-date, wirelessly.
What you need to do is:
- Install nRF Connect and download our latest firmware package on your smartphone
- Open the MakeApp and connect to the BLE-B you are observing by tapping its icon. Now hold your BLE-B’s button down while tapping the “RESET BLE-B” button at the end of the page: the LED will light up cyan
- Follow the steps on our tutorial!
Near Field Communication
Our BLE-B can emulate a Near Field Communication tag that you can read or write using your smartphone.
Apps such as “NFC Tools” allow you to write different information on the tag such as text, URL links, global coordinates, and even instructions for triggering a call or a SMS on the reading smartphone.
