  1. Denise and I discussed the requirement for WiFi and Bluetooth. AdaBee Version 1 is based on an Arduino based Adafruit Flora wearable microcontroller, At FabLab a case was created and AdaBee was powered using a battery pack. The problem with this is that the Flora does is not equipped with WiFi. A bluetooth module is avalable but rather than addons we have concluded that a we should go back to the drawing board.

    The Raspberry Pi Zero W is, more or less, a small form factor version of the Raspberry Pi 3. Both are equipped with WiFi and Bluetooth. It was agreed that the best way forward would be to wok with the Pi3 to develop a sensor array to provide AdaBee with controllable lights. movement(shake) and more. Once done the sensors could be migrated to the PiZeroW and a case built to suit. Whilst acknowledging that this approch has some drawbacks these were far outweighed by the benefits.
