The t?d is a smart beacon, it connects all of the user’s devices such as Smartphone’s and tablets to the real world via a Bluetooth connection. The range varies from three to five hundred feet, which may seem extreme but I suppose it is going to depend on the surroundings and conditions. This idea is in its early design stages and the firm behind it are currently looking to raise funds through Kickstarter in order to take it onto the next the level, which is production!
These are the details of the t?d device as taken from their Kickstarter pitch;
t?d (pronounced “toad”) is an exciting and powerful new way to connect your mobile device* to the world around and right in front of you, using our bite-sized ultra low power Bluetooth 4.0 enabled Smart Beacons.
Simply attach or place a t?d Smart Beacon, that can run for years on a single coin-cell battery onto anything, anywhere you want to extend mobile device or web functionality. Or, you can interact with Smart Beacons placed by others that you are allowed to connect with.
To get your very own t?d device you can back the project on Kickstarter for just £16 $25!
