Our brilliant apps engineers continue to play around with our newly-launched Nordic Thingy:52.
The Thingy connects to the Raspberry Pi with Bluetooth and uses it as an internet gateway. The Raspberry Pi runs the node.js scripts.
The provided examples, which you can download below the video, include:
The node.js scripts are multi-platform of course, and everything can be downloaded from this GitHub repository:

Cool stuff. I'm on RPi/Debian. After I've run a few demos, Thingy.discover() no longer succeeds. I notice that a bunch of kworker jobs have accumulated:

After I kill them off, Thingy.dicover() once again works. Is this an error on my part? Should I file it as an issue under github.com/.../issues Or is this a known problem?
Cool! Thingy:52 FEATURES - Microphone streaming. I thought BLE was slow to stream music. Is streaming MP3 musics (192 or 320kbps) and streaming microphone different or is the Thingy52 uses the high speed mode (2Mbps) in the RPi internet radio demo?
The Thingy connects to the Raspberry Pi with Bluetooth and uses it as an internet gateway. In the GitHub README or the blog, I don't see any explanation about what BLE service, or something else, is used. What BLE service is used for RPi internet radio demo?
Fantastic, I'm already implementing your toy, and creating new opportunities. Thanks for your sharing
great stuff, I am ready to start with it :)
Just a quick one... can I use this code repo, together with the nRF52840 PDK plugged on the PI?
Reason being I would like to test soon a setup using Bluetooth 5.0 with several nRF52840 nodes, including also a couple of Thingys
