tōd Smart Beacons extend your mobile devices beyond apps and into the world around you
Lehi, Utah (PRWEB) April 27, 2012
You’ve got the newest coolest gadgets, the iPhone 4s®, new iPad® or Droid Razr®, now the team at tōd wants to take them to the next level with the tōd Smart Beacon(TM). With this wireless accessory built on the new Bluetooth 4.0 standard, you can extend your devices beyond mere apps and into a A World of Interactions(TM).
This cool new wireless accessory, that’s about the size of half dollar, will connect any Bluetooth Smart Ready Device to a seemingly unlimited array of information and feedback with the cloud driven tōd App.
The tōd Smart Beacon runs on a coil cell battery for up to two years and can extend the functionality of your mobile devices by connecting real world actions to core mobile device functionality, and the web.
Now simple actions, like your child wandering from the park, getting in your car, or your school age child getting home, can be connected to a wide range of customizable interactions on your mobile devices.
With the tōd App and Smart Beacons you can get an alert if your child wanders too far from you at the park, so you can relax when you’re there. If you are expecting your child to get home at 3:30pm, the tōd App will send you an email letting you know if they’re running late, as well as another when they do arrive home. With a tōd Smart Beacon in the car you can automatically set handsfree and disable SMS apps when you get into the car. The tōd App will also automatically drop a GPS pin when you get out of the car so that if you need to, you can easily get back to your car later.
All this and so much more from the tiny tōd Smart Beacon that interacts with your mobile devices on 3 core events: in range, out of range and scheduled. With these three core events tōd Smart Beacons extend your mobile devices beyond apps and into the world around you.
With roots in robotics and DIY electronics, tōd Smart Beacon were made with other DIY electronic hobbyists in mind. Included are two data headers for quick connections to other electronics platforms, or add-on sensors and modules. A third debug header will allow for custom firmware profiles on the BlueGiga BLE112-A module, the power behind the tōd Smart Beacon. The tōd Smart Beacon will make it quick, easy and affordable for hobbyists to experiment with Bluetooth 4.0 and connect their projects to the web using their mobile devices instead of a WiFi module.
The Bluetooth Special Interest Group, the folks behind Bluetooth technology, have indicated that the new Bluetooth 4.0 standard will be included in nearly all phones released moving forward. tōd LLC is excited to be on the bleeding edge of this cutting edge technology with the tōd Smart Beacons and App.
The Rowdy Robot team has taken the project to the crowd at Kickstarter.com as they have have come to the end of what they can do on their own. Jon Prevo, CEO and driving force behind the project, is eager for the active feedback that the vibrant Kickstarter Crowd has to offer, and the freedom that crowd funding brings.
