Estimote Beacons and Stickers are small wireless sensors that you can attach to any location or object. They broadcast tiny radio signals which your smartphone can receive and interpret, unlocking micro-location and contextual awareness. With the Estimote SDK, apps on your smartphone are able to understand their proximity to nearby locations and objects, recognizing their type, ownership, approximate location, temperature and motion. Use this data to build a new generation of magical mobile apps that connect the real world to your smart device. You can stick tiny estimote beacons in any location or to any object to create new, contextually rich mobile experiences.
Let us know if you wish to use beacons in your project and describe what do you intend to do. We have 5 devkits to give away. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org
