NEW GUIDE: CircuitPython BLE Advertising Beacons @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit

This new guide, CircuitPython BLE Advertising Beacons,  shows you how to create Bluetooth beacons on any nRF52840 board from Adafruit. These can be used to advertise a URL to a mobile app in a very localized scenario, such as a guided tour in a museum space.

Plus, the CLUE version can also serve up auto-generated QR codes.

Beacons are low power, low cost Bluetooth LE devices that can be used for a very simple job: to advertise a URL to users running an app on their mobile device within range of the device!

Technically, beacons can also be used for a few different scenarios where a localized, wireless data broadcast is desirable, such as indoor location tracking, point of sales/marketing, and experience personalization.

We’ll create two version — first, a simple beacon that can run on any CircuitPython capable nRF52840 board. Second, a custom version for the CLUE board that also shows QR codes and allows you to scroll among multiple beacon URL choices to advertise!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
