Join Michael Lehman for an in-depth discussion in this video Demonstrating iBeacon, part of Programming the Internet of Things with iOS.
- You've seen a lot of ScreenCap of iBeacons.…Let's see an iBeacon live.…The one we're looking at right here…is an iBeacon from Estimote.…You can see it has a heavy duty…silicone package on the outside.…This little tab right here is protecting a double-sticky…tape on the back for mounting it on the wall.…Inside this guy we'll find a computer.…Here is the front side of the Estimote iBeacon,…which is basically all for holding the battery.…And on the back, the big black square is a processor.…
The small square is a temperature sensor.…The rest of the logic you see there is battery management,…because you want this to last for a couple of years.…So now let's switch over to the Estimote app…from the App Store, which is a free download,…and see this iBeacon in action.…Here's the Estimote iBeacon app.…It has a number of demos that you can…use with your iBeacon to try it out.…The one we're interested in is called Beacons…down here in the lower right-hand corner.…which gives us sort of a radar display…of the beacons in the room.…
