During Couchbase Connect Silicon Valley last Fall, we went through an extensive demonstration application that showed many of the capabilities of the Couchbase Data Platform. You can see the full video of the demonstration here.

In some parts of the video it’s a little difficult to see exactly what’s going on. We’re making some follow-on ones to help with that.

This first video takes a close-up look at the NFC battery-less temperature sensing patch. It also highlights the automatic sync capabilities of Couchbase Mobile.

There will be related posts looking at the source code for reading the patch. There is also a soft-entry version that lets you run the application without having an actual patch. See the upcoming video and posts about configuring the demo understand how to use that.

You can read about the patch on the Texas Instruments website here. Programming information is available in the Firmware User’s Guide.

You can order the patch through Mouser Electronics. There may be other sources. That’s just where I was able to get them.

For a high-level architectural overview of the complete application, see this video or this post.
