Lessons Learned with using Bluetooth Low Energy in Wearables

Speaker: Jacky Cheung, Google

The cost of integrating Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) into consumer electronics has dropped significantly over the years. With all the promising features introduced in Bluetooth 5.X, Bluetooth LE has become the de-facto connectivity solution for wearables.

This talk will present lessons learned with using Bluetooth Low Energy in wearable projects. It highlights some of the key design considerations and offers some practical tips to balance between speed and power consumption, which are particularly important for wearable devices.

Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) OTA: or how I learned to stop worrying about spiders, snakes, hornets while building IoT devices on the Tech Farm

Speakers: Thea and Marc Aldrich, Foundries IO

Building and deploying embedded devices in the real world isn’t as glamorous as the corporate demos would lead you to believe. A few years ago we set out to build a simple cow tracking and happiness device. Since then things have escalated. And what have we learned? It gets hot, it rains, there is a whole lot of walking and, to be honest, the cows don't ever seem to fully appreciate the effort. Then there are the spiders, snakes and hornets. We all know this story ends in pain. But does it?

In this presentation we’ll take you through the intensely scientific process of designing, building and deploying the latest version of our low cost, wirelessly connected farm automation and cow tracking system running Foundries.io’s Linux microPlatform (LmP) and Zephyr OS. All devices are now updateable over-the-air thanks to FoundriesFactory’s OTA functionality and OTA-DFU updates over Bluetooth LE from the Nordic NRF52840 based Reel Boards. No animals - other than humans - were harmed in the course of this project.

The Love story between the Web and Bluetooth

Speaker: Kevin Picchi, Samsung

The Web has been around before I was even born, since its creation the Web has grown bigger, always evolves and gets blessed with new capabilities. The capability that brings me here today is Web Bluetooth.

Just imagine controlling a drone through a web page without even having to download a native app, not having to update it, a quick refresh of the page and done.

Well this is possible since the integration a few years since the integration of Web Bluetooth in most browsers.

In this talk we are going to take a look how the relationship between Web and Bluetooth work. How it can make a difference and how to setup a basic communication between a web page and a Bluetooth device.

Advanced Bluetooth Technology - Under the APIs

Speaker: Martin Woolley, Bluetooth SIG

Bluetooth technology has changed enormously since its initial release about twenty years ago. Communication can now take place over distances in excess of a kilometre. It’s twice as fast as it used to be and connectionless communication through broadcasting data to an unlimited number of receivers has become extremely versatile and powerful. Oh and did you know, you can also create secure networks of tens of thousands of smart devices using Bluetooth technology?

All of these advanced capabilities are there for developers to exploit. By examining subjects like data rates, range and reliability, this talk will provide a guided tour of the most interesting and advanced aspects of Bluetooth technology and how they work, under the APIs.

      We knew Samsung was gearing up to announce new foldable phones, but we weren’t sure exactly when it would happen. But now a new leak has spoiled the date of Samsung’s latest Unpacked event. On Monday morning, leaker Evan Blass tweeted out a leaked promotional image for the next Galaxy Unpacked event. The image reveals that Samsung will debut the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 on August 10th.
      Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 reveal set for August
      The image appears to be the invite that members of the press will likely receive in the days ahead. The date appears to the left of a blurry device, which is almost certainly the Galaxy Z Flip 4. As always, Samsung will stream the event live on its website.
      Blass claimed in a follow-up tweet that the title of the event will be “Unfold Your World,” referring to the new foldable phones.
      Of course, foldable phones won’t be the only new devices to surface at the event. Front Page Tech host Jon Prosser previously leaked the date of the Unpacked event in June. At that time, he said the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro smartwatches would launch alongside the foldables on August 10th and begin shipping on August 26th.
      He also spoiled the color options for all five new models Samsung will announce:
      Galaxy Z Fold 4: Phantom Black, Green, Beige Galaxy Z Flip 4: Graphite, Bora Purple, Pink Gold, Blue Galaxy Watch 5 (40mm): Phantom Black, Silver, Pink Gold Galaxy Watch 5 (44mm): Phantom Black, Silver, Sapphire Galaxy Watch 5 Pro: Phantom Black, Silver Samsung typically announces the dates of its Unpacked streams two weeks ahead of time. Therefore, we expect an official confirmation next week.
      Leaked specifications and features
      According to previous leaks, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will feature a 7.6-inch QXGA+ AMOLED main display, a 6.2-inch HD+ AMOLED front display, Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, 12GB of RAM, up to 512GB of storage, 4400mAh battery, and triple rear camera.
      Leaked benchmarks have also given us an idea of the power of the Galaxy Z Flip 4, and fans should be excited. Twitter leaker Ice Universe said that the power consumption performance of the 4nm chip in the Z Flip 4 will be better than that of Samsung’s chips.

      After the Galaxy S22 series’ semi-disastrous launch, Samsung probably can’t wait to unveil its next flagship phones. These will be foldable devices, however. They’re the successors of last year’s Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Flip 3. The Fold 4 and Flip 4 have appeared in several leaks already, and we know what to expect from the handsets’ designs and specs sheets. And a leaker just revealed the purported launch, preorder, and release dates for the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4.
       
      The Fold 4 and Flip 4 will look like their predecessors, but fans of foldable handsets can expect several significant design changes.
      Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 4 design is the more exciting of the two devices. The phone will be shorter and wider than the Fold 3. It’ll still have a massive internal foldable display. But it should be more comfortable to use the handset when folded because the external display will have a better aspect ratio.
      The Fold 4 is also going to be lighter and thinner than its predecessor. Samsung will supposedly use a new hinge mechanism to reduce the phone’s weight.
      The same leaker who provided most of the aforementioned Galaxy Z Fold 4 details also listed the handset’s main specs. The main takeaway is that the Fold 4 will feature a brand new chip, the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 that Qualcomm just unveiled.
      This implies that all the Fold 4 models will pack the same System-on-Chip (SoC), which is good news for fans. Poor Exynos 2200 performance hurt the Galaxy S22 this year, and many people think Samsung should drop its latest SoC as soon as possible.
      Ice Universe has provided plenty of tidbits about the Fold 4 and Flip 4 in the past. But he never revealed the launch and release date details for the two Galaxy Z phones.
      Thankfully, we now have that information from a different prominent leaker, YouTuber Jon Prosser.
      Galaxy Z Fold 4 release date
      The YouTuber took to Twitter to discuss several unreleased Samsung products, including the new foldables. Prosser revealed launch, preorder, and release dates in a series of tweets. He mentioned the Galaxy Z Fold 4, Flip 4, a Lavander version of the Galaxy S22, as well as upcoming Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro wearables.
      If Prosser’s sources are correct, Samsung will hold its Galaxy Z Fold 4 launch event on August 10th. That’s when the company should unveil the Flip 4 and its new 2022 wearable generation. Preorders for all these products should start on the same day.
      Then, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and the rest of these new devices will apparently get the same release date: August 26th.
      The leaker said that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will come in Phantom Black, Green, and Beige. The Flip 4 will be available in colorway options at launch, including Graphite, Bora Purple, Pink Gold, and Blue.
      The Galaxy Watch 5 will come in 40mm and 44mm sizes, which sound familiar. Both models are said to be available in Phantom Black or Silver. The smaller model will get a Pink option, while the 44mm will get a Sapphire (blueish) colorway. The Watch 5 Pro will also reportedly come in Phantom Black and Silver, but it’ll be slightly larger at 46mm.
      Prosser did not provide pricing information for any of these devices, but at least we have an apparent release date. However, considering that Samsung went out of its way to make last year’s foldables more affordable, we’d expect a similar strategy for the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4.
      The prices should leak as we get closer to the launch event.

      Two of the things I really like about game developers are their constant drive for innovation and seemingly endless energy. And that cannot be more obvious than participating in an event like the IndieCade International Festival of Independent Games. For 15-plus years, IndieCade has been the premiere stand-alone gathering and showcase for indie games worldwide.
      This year, the festival had to completely rethink itself to accommodate our new global reality, and I am so happy to say that the organizers absolutely nailed their “Anywhere and Everywhere” motto. For nine days, the Samsung Developers team were immersed in game presentations and awards, networking events, game slams, and social media madness.
      Let’s take a look at some of the highlights of the event and my general musings about the games and participants.
      As an event sponsor, we had the privilege to collaborate with the IndieCade audience in several ways:
      Attending multiple live presentations Presenting the renewed Samsung Galaxy Store Creating a virtual Samsung Developers booth Watching the nominated games and the highly-anticipated award winners The Samsung Galaxy Store Presentation: Where Indie Games Get Discovered
      For obvious reasons, the biggest point of the event for me was to lead the presentation that introduced the new game-focused experience of Galaxy Store. Available in more than 180 countries with more than 400M month active users, Galaxy Store is a great place for developers to publish their game and get discovered. With the help of my colleague, Shelley Wu, we showcased the different opportunities that game developers have to promote and market their games, gave a hands-on walkthrough of the Games tab in the store, and showed how its design promotes discovery of new games.
      Additionally, I gave a live step-by-step demonstration on how to create a Seller Portal account, how to request commercial seller status, and the different steps an indie developer should follow to publish their first game.
      This presentation is filled with helpful information and tips, and I recommend you watch it.
      Live Presentations
      Pre-selected game developers were able to showcase their games and particate in the conference chat on IndieCade’s Twitch channel. It is hard to pick just a few games, but these will give you a pretty good idea of what you could expect:
      - Aria
      Aria is a story-based VR experience where you are placed in a pod to escape a catastrophic explosion on your spaceship. Watch Aria's stream
      - Endlight
      This one is more like a psychedelic, fast-paced experience. Watch Endlight's stream
      - Lost Words
      This one is a highly praised puzzle game that is set in the pages of a young girl’s diary, and you have to use words to advance the story. Watch Lost Words' stream
      - Thousand Year Old Vampire
      This one is for the fans of table top games. It is incredibly innovative and, unlike most TTRPGs, is a solo experience that allows you to create the story of the titular vampire. Watch Thousand Year Old Vampire's stream
      Nominees and Winners
      This year, IndieCade nominated over 50 games and in the end, there were 12 award winners. As a game designer myself, I particularly enjoyed reading the comments from the jury.
