From the Forums: Blink Feather Bluefruit LE’s LED via Web Bluetooth (in Browser)

While Web Bluetooth is not yet a W3C standard, there is a community behind it and they are pushing the agenda forward. If you have a Feather Bluefruit LE product you can attempt this blink project, with most support being offered for the Chrome browser.

I’ve created a simple demo of using the browser based Web Bluetooth API (a w3c draft spec) to control a Feather Bluefruit LE; it’s the classic blink example using Adafruit’s nrf51 firmata and is controlled from within a browser on your computer or mobile device, i.e. there’s no native app, it just HTML, JavaScript accessing your computers/mobile device’s BLE hardware to communicate with Bluetooth LE devices that are in range.

You can find the demo on this website near the bottom under the Arduino Firmata – Adafruit Feather heading.

Thanks to user waynek for sending this in; also check out the Web Bluetooth Community Group on GitHub.
