Getting Physical with Web Bluetooth

It is time to get out of your web browser boundaries! With a new technology “Web Bluetooth”, our web apps are finally able to communicate directly with Physical Devices and control them. Whether it is a heart-rate sensor, a BB-8 robot, or your smart refrigerator – Web Bluetooth got you covered. In this talk, we will learn the basics of the underlying Bluetooth Low Energy technology, then cover the Web Bluetooth APIs, and finally engage in a live demo where we will control a smart Light Bulb, as well as a cute 3D-printed Robot, directly from a web page.
