PSoC 4 BLE on Kickstarter

I was just made aware of a new PSoC enabled Kickstarter project. The PSoC 4 BLE powers the THINGY a small re-programmable sensor. The THINGY team has created a full open source BLE app that can be used with each of the three versions of the sensor.

 

Introduction to the THINGY:

 

 

 

Feature Set : THINGY #1

THINGY1 has Bluetooth, can read Temperature, blink a multicolor Led, has 2 capsense touch buttons (there are no mechanical buttons in the device), can detect Motion, and will Buzz on command. Also with 2 Thingy1s you do NOT need your phone once they have been initially programmed. One would be placed into the Master mode the other in the Slave mode, no worries, we will have setup apps to download and program internal.

Feature set : THINGY #2

THINGY2 has Bluetooth, can read Temperature, blink a Multicolor LED, has 2 capsense touch buttons (there are no mechanical buttons in the device), can detect Motion, Buzz on command, Water detection, Proximity, Microphone, Speaker, Power Detection (detect if a space heater is left on), and Extra Storage Memory.

For example...Open Mic: listen in on those sneaky kids who are supposed to be sleeping or an inexpensive baby monitor. How about use the Current Detector to see if your space heater was left on.
