@ andre.m was one of the trend setters who made the pilgrimage to the first (and maybe only) Stevenage workshop a few months ago. As part of that day Andre built his own STM powered Smart node with BLE capabilities.
Since heading home Andre has been madly tapping away at the keyboard in between sipping latte’s and has sent me a project that he has been working on.
Andre has created both a WP8.1 app and a Win8.1 app that talks via BLE to the Smart node enabling it to both read and write to all the available ports and also send user defined text as well.
Andre has written the apps so that the BLE connection data is saved on the device and the last saved connection is automatically used to connect if no current connection exists.
I would like to publicly thank Andre for taking the time to write these excellent demo apps which i think showcase some of the new abilities that BLE opens up to NETMF very well.
The video is a bit grainy and not exactly a visual masterpiece - but hey… Peter Jackson i am not :
