  • Visualization of real-time and historical values on the configurable web dashboards.

Bluetooth vs. BLE – The IoT Difference

Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy are used for very different purposes. Bluetooth can handle a lot of data, but consumes battery life quickly and costs a lot more. BLE is used for applications that do not need to exchange large amounts of data, and can therefore run on battery power for years at a cheaper cost. It all depends on what you’re trying to accomplish.


BOSON is LEGO compatible and can also be attached to projects with magnets, screws or velcro.

Boson Modules

You can build lots of stuff with BOSON without needing to code.

BOSON can use an Intel’s Curie module for machine learning and pattern recognition. It will also be possible to use BOSON with Arduino and the BBC micro:bit. Coding in Scratch, Blockly, Python and JavaScript is mentioned.
