Almost on this exact day last year the Hexiwear Kickstarter campaign reached the 35.000 funding mark. This triggered a stretch goal — creating WiFi examples for Hexiwear and the docking station, to enable users to stream sensor data directly to the WolkSense cloud without a BLE-enabled smartphone working as a gateway.
Admittedly, we stretched the meaning of the word “stretch” in stretch goal. It took us a year to deliver the promised example. But as a consolation prize, we are offering a double-treat: we also released an example that let’s you stream Hexiwear sensor data through the WolkSense cloud using a 3G connection.
In its current version, the examples are available as mikroC PRO for ARM projects. Setting them up requires some edits to the source code (instructions available in the readme file; among other things, it requires you to install a custom version of mikroC available on GitHub).
That said, we also plan to release a version where you can configure the settings from within the application. That way, a precompiled hex file would be all you need.
