Sometimes, it seems the world has become too closed, simultaneously with development of Internet, social media and incredible gadgets. Every day we do not take off our eyes from the phone screen when we are in public transport, in a cafe or at a party. And it’s quite natural because the world and communication are going forward very fast, the social networks are in trend as never. We don’t take a look around the world, and we simply forgot how to smile, say “hi” or just to say thanks to the people nearby. No wonder that there are many memes on this topic.

You’ve probably heard of Bluetooth Ibeacon or Eddyston used for indoor geolocation. We accomplished a series of tests of the working mode similar to Bluetooth Beacon for phones, but rather of the mode when the phone turns into a beacon itself and becomes visible and able to find other nearby phones over Bluetooth. Some results surprised us and we decided that it’s worth writing about it
Also, these figures can explain the work of other Bluetooth devices, such as Bluetooth speakers or smart watches.
In this article we will tell you about main development aspects of the first prototype of LikeMe Display.
Jumping the gun I’d like to say that our prototype can be called an alpha version per se. It’s due to the fact that there are two screens (which we personally don’t like) and that we want to make it a little bigger than it is now. But for this purpose we need to order outsized screens from the manufacturer, that we can’t afford yet.
In order to show all the variety of options that we were going over on should do a separate gallery.
Here we’ll show you only the highlights. After having the first consultation with an expert on production adjustment, we received following reply ‘too many elements for such a simple device’.
We’ve decided to simplify the appearance and reduce the number of elements.
None of our team’s members hasn’t blogged before writing this article, but since we have been working for almost a year, we have much to share with you.
