Web Bluetooth is a brand new technology that allows your Web Browser to talk to Low Energy Bluetooth devices using JavaScript. In this session Dan covers all things Web Bluetooth, how it can be applied to the Physical Web: from connecting to BLE devices and controlling physical toys with your browser through to heart-rate monitors and other standards based devices. The limitations of the Web are shrinking; come see what you can do today and what's coming to a browser near you soon.

Web Bluetooth is a brand new technology, opening the door to other up and coming technologies. The web is getting larger and what web developers are able to accomplish using their native technologies is growing every week. With both Mozilla and Google driving innovation forward in this area, we'll soon be able to connect to any physical device around us.
