  • How customizable is the embedded node.js system? Can I upgrade it? Can I use npm to install global packages? Are there limitations? Most importantly, is this running some sort of embedded Linux?

  • Answering my own question here. Please correct the product description. "26uA consumption while still being discoverable" is incorrect. I just got the following message from Roving Networks support:

    "The module is not discoverable in deep sleep. The module can be put in a mode that toggles between deep-sleep (26uA) and discoverable (35mA). The duty cycle can be adjusted to trade off visibility and power consumption. About 3mA average is typical with 260uA still giving reasonable (10 sec) visibility."

    Best.

  • Are you guys sure this module consumes 26 uA while still discoverable? I'm trying to figure out for how long will this module run on 2 AAA batteries (or one 3V coin battery) while only being discoverable (no communications or pairing necessary). My use case has to do with rf id only. I need an active tag visible from at least 10 meters by an Android mobile device. Thx!

  • Can I use it as an altimeter? I need to open a parachute before my package crashes into the ground (need to interface it to an Arduino board)

  • Can this one be easily interfaced to a BluetoothMate or similar? Can it be powered with a Lipo?

  • I successfully flashed the part that comes with the ATmega 168 and I'm getting very inaccurate results (or so it seems). Can anybody check my story here?

No public wish lists :(
