Looking to play with an iBeacon or few. Anybody have anything they aren't using (or a good local supplier)? Thanks

Linux.

 

Not sure how that is very helpful?

 

I'm after some small battery or USB powered iBeacons.

If you were just playing with the technology then you can make a beacon a linux device eg a laptop that has a suitable bluetooth radio.  No idea on the devices otherwise sorry.

Where are you based? I'm testing a few at the moment. Got them from Aliexpress but they work great.

I'm in Christchurch but happy to pay shipping if needed, won't be much?

 

If you had a spare one that would be amazing - save me the wait time from AliExpress and allow me to do a proof of concept :-)
