Nordic Thingy:52IoT sensor kit

Compact multi-sensor prototyping platform

The Nordic Thingy:52™ is an easy-to-use prototyping platform, designed to help in building prototypes and demos, without the need to build hardware or even write firmware. It is built around the nRF52832 Bluetooth 5 SoC.

All sensors and actuators can be configured over-the-air using Bluetooth Low Energy. It makes it possible to create demos and prototypes without starting from scratch. It connects to Bluetooth Low Energy-enabled smart phones, tablets, laptops and similar devices, and it sends/receives data from/to its sensors/actuators to an app or cloud. It includes an NFC antenna, and has 1 button and 1 RGB LED that simplifies input and output.

It comes with the accompanying Nordic Thingy:52 app for iOS and Android, and a web Bluetooth API app. It also offers cloud connectivity through the IFTTT web service.

It is powered with a rechargeable Li-Po battery with a capacity of 1440 mAh, that can be charged via USB. Source code for firmware and mobile apps and hardware layout and schematics are available.

Source code for the firmware can be found on GitHub here, with belonging documentation here
