For some time now the proponents of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) have promised this technology will deliver cheap and simple solution for locating “things” within an indoor space. There have been many attempts at this, with mixed results, now Apple has introduced the much heralded iBeacon does this mean it is ready for consumers?

In this talk I will dig into what BLE is and how it can be used to provide location indoors, then move onto some of the experience we have had using it at Ninja Blocks, what worked, what didn’t, and how we are planning on using this technology in our products.
