Puck.js – the ground-breaking bluetooth beacon by Gordon Williams @Espruino

Puck Ks-1

Puck.js – the ground-breaking bluetooth beacon by Gordon Williams — Kickstarter.

Gordon Williams, designer and maintainer of Espruino (https://www.adafruit.com/?q=espruino) has a new BLE-compatible Javascriptable hardware board coming out. Puck.js is a low energy bluetooth beacon which will be programmed and debugged wirelessly, either graphically or with JavaScript. It’s based on the new Nordic nRF52 chipset and will come with a magnetometer, multiple LEDs, a tactile button and a tiny silicone case. The Puck.js will come with the Espruino JavaScript interpreter pre-installed and could be programmed and controlled with Web Bluetooth, straight from a Chrome browser. You can back it yourself on KickStarter!

We don’t post many Kickstarters, but this is one of them!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
