How can the puck connect to the internet?

Posted on
  • Hi,
    I'm thinking of buying a puck.js and I read on the kickstarter page that it can connect to the internet.
    How so? Does it connect to the internet via bluetooth?
    kinda like this:

    PUCK --bluetooth--> COMPUTER --wifi--> INTERNET
    PUCK <--bluetooth-- COMPUTER <--wifi-- INTERNET

    is this correct?

    Thanks!

  • Computer or smartphone ;-)

  • Yes, realistically you need some kind of bridge. There's some software that can run on a Raspberry Pi that can act as a proxy - there's a little bit of info here: http://www.espruino.com/Puck.js+HTTP+Pro­xy

    However, you can also connect an ESP8266 WiFi module or a GSM/LTE module directly to Puck.js and it can access the internet that way, using all the usual Espruino http & socket APIs.
