I was searching for single board controllers with integrated wifi and bluetooth modules and found that there was a new board on the market. The C.H.I.P. which has wifi, bluetooth and vga/hdmi connection.
This board costs only $9!!!
This board runs a linux-like OS. Now I was wondering if there is a possibility to see if there is a blynk integration with this board.
Not as server, but as controller. So you can turn the lights on, when entering the room by checking the bluetooth connection strength.
ESP32 has the same features, but the C.H.I.P. can also run processes which ESP32 can not.
But I think the C.H.I.P. will not be a real-time controller, which arduino-like boards are, caused by background processes of Linux.
@Dmitriy your reference to “yet” is somewhat misplaced. They have already been on the “market”, sent out thousands and Pavel has them to prove it. Presumably Pavel bought 2 so they can be tested and added to your list of supported devices.
Can’t buy/pre-order it either. But that’s because I don’t have a creditcard… Everything in the US needs to be paid with a creditcard. When you want a creditcard in most countries of the EU, you need to pay every month for the creditcard service without even using is.
In the EU we have a debitcard. In the Netherlands we use iDeal. Kind of PayPal but than it’s a realtime transfer between bank accounts.
So I tried to contact them to make an offer with PayPal, but they won’t.
So I need to wait until they want to work with PayPal…
