Integration with the Raspberry Pi

Submitted by Brice Hoa on Thu, 06/29/2017 - 22:18

Hi - Is there a way to use the PocketLab with a Raspberry Pi 3? The Pi 3 has a BLE device on board and I wondered if PocketLap has an API I could interface with from the Pi?

Hi Brice, 

Thanks so much for your question! Currently there is not an API that could interface with a Raspberry Pi. However, this is something we are developing for our new products, PocketLab Voyager and PocketLab Weather. We would most likely also have the API work with the original PocketLab as well. 

We just wrapped up our Kickstarter for PocketLab Voyager and Weather. Here is an update from the campaign that gives a more detailed overview of the PocketLab and Raspberry Pi integration:

If you're interested in Voyager or Weather, while the Kickstarter campaign is over, the devices are still available for pre-order on Indiegogo Indemand:

Let me know if you have any other questions.
