We’ve designed custom pressure sensors that are rugged and sleek and provide an easy way to detect pressure say, to act like push buttons or to set off alarms while someone steps on one or to detect if you’re sitting on it! Coming soon to applications near you!
Glad to announce the beta launch of Danta by Vaata, a smart ‘industrial’ hand sanitizer dispenser. The first commercial product launch with Tinkerbee Inside powering all the embedded and API smarts 🙂 QC tests are now in progress (as of end-October 2020) and the product should be available in the market soon. Do reach out… Continue reading Danta by Vaata
From Appliance Plumbing Interface… Imagine that you have just designed a water faucet/ tap which dispenses water only if your fingerprint matches (however strange this may sound, I believe creativity should know no bounds ;). Now, for this to be actually used in a real wash-room or a kitchen sink, it needs to have a… Continue reading API + RESTful API. An introduction. Plain and simple
“I see people” Once upon a time there was the simple Internet and it was designed for people to exchange content with each other. Since it was implied that this Internet of People (IoP) was for obviously for people, it was simply known as the Internet. “People; meet Things” Then came the Things. Smart devices,… Continue reading LPWAN, LoRaWAN, NB-IoT: An introduction. Plain and simple
TinkerBee has developed capabilities around Nordic Semiconductor‘s BLE enabled SoCs in nRF51 series. We’ve played around with the powerful nRF51822 module and used the ARM mbed platform to develop one of our earliest (and may we say- revolutionary) products called EyeBee. Well, more on that soon. It is an awesome board designed by us, powered by a CR2030 button… Continue reading Bluetooth Low Energy devices
Over the years WiFi has become so prevalent that a hotspot or an access point is the first thing we look for when we reach a location! Ever since Expressif launched an extremely versatile and low-cost chip that combined a microcontroller and a WiFi module into a single unit called the ESP-8266, there has been an explosion of… Continue reading WiFi devices
Recap counting! The decimal number system that we are used to, is called so because it uses 10 distinct symbols to represent any value. These symbols are 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9. Any ‘number’ can therefore be represented by combining these 10 distinct symbols. What is interesting is that,… Continue reading Number systems
This is a great time to be a part of the hardware+software maker movement. The things that you make here are called- Things! Seriously 🙂 and by extension, we have IoT, aka Internet of Things. There is such a wide variety of low-cost, easy to program and reasonably simple to integrate micro-controllers out there that its literally… Continue reading An introduction to Programmable Things
