Nearables are here: introducing Estimote Stickers

Estimote Stickers are complementary to Estimote Beacons. Whereas beacons add a layer of contextual intelligence to static locations such as stores, museums and airports, stickers extend that context to the objects within those venues. Stickers contain accelerometer and temperature sensors and an optimized ARM processor with flash memory and Bluetooth Smart controller, all inside a significantly smaller and thinner form factor. Stickers are truly designed to be placed on everyday objects. Simply attach a sticker to an item to turn it into a nearable – a smart, connected object that broadcasts data about its location, motion and temperature.

Estimote is introducing the term nearable as an intelligent object linked by a smart beacon with a rich SDK to the cloud. Estimote Stickers will be pre-programmed with nearable-specific context and an upcoming new version of our SDK with a higher level of abstraction. This SDK will give developers tools to classify objects—for example, which objects around me do I own? Which are in motion? As a developer you shouldn’t have to listen to the UUID and measure a distance given to you as RSSI, but instead have a model that helps you implicitly declare much more about the physical world. For example if you build an electronic leash app for attaching an Estimote Sticker to your dog, you assign the nearable as a moving object which you own. Is it hot outside? Maybe your dog needs more water as she’s moved more today than yesterday. You will be able to access default object classes (interaction, motion, ownership, type of object) or set up your own behavior and access other classes or methods as a developer — e.g, the motion sensor on a purse should trigger different actions than the motion sensor on a sticker attached to your dog.

Les balises Nearables sont en pré-commande à $99 pour 10 stickers. (Les beacons classiques sont vendus 99$ pour 3 balises.)
