A Beacon
September 07, 2018 by Tony

So I’ve started carrying around a beacon. If you’ve found this link randomly being broadcast, then hello! A beacon transmits a unique ID via Bluetooth and can be used for hyper-local homing by devices. This one is just lets you know I’m around. Why? No good reason, I just thought the fact that Google lets me pop up a message on your phone with a link is cool.

My model is the RadBeacon Dot by Radius networks. It works pretty well so far.

Well that’s all. If you see my beacon, come say hi and tell me that it’s working.
