in $5 range
in $5 range
Haha. Yes. That would be nice. It's not going to happen any time soon though I'm afraid - even selling at cost I wouldn't hit that :)
@Spocki yes - I'd like to do something else that fits in the same Puck.js molds too, but I know what you mean. It's hard to cram enough extra worthwhile stuff on there at the moment.
Teensy looks like an interesting form factor... Do you think that more breakouts are available for Teensy 3.2 than for the Arduino Nano?
for $5 range I compared with https://minew.en.alibaba.com/product/60606212990-802524400/Factory_Direct_Sale_Anti_losting_Tracker.html with nRF51822, buzzer, on/off button that is $3 at 1000 units (that was 2 years ago)
I like the http://www.m5stack.com/ form factor - small, 320x240 LCD, stackable, easy to prototype.
another cheap round design ESP32 solution – https://www.tindie.com/products/Sandeep_ee/hornbill-esp32-minima/
just brainstorming around
Honestly I don't know how they manage that - because just the bare Raytac bluetooth module costs me ~$4, without anything else.
I did contact Minewtech about a very slightly custom beacon (not even using a custom PCB) before I launched Puck.js and I was quoted around $15 at 1000-off I believe, for an nRF51 beacon.
I think it's just the sheer quantity they make them in.
maybe try to negotiate with them again. or sell more Puck.js 😋
Try to order boards from https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a312a.7700824.w4023-16080569721.11.6e5efbbasB39iB&id=532630623264
They almost like MDBT42 ut may be cheaper.
