Joakim from Nordic Semiconductor shows you how to stream Internet radio with our Nordic Thingy:52™ via a Raspberry Pi using Node.js.

Nordic Semiconductor's brilliant apps engineers continue to play around with the newly-launched Nordic Thingy:52. This time, they have prepared a few Javascript demos using node.js and a Raspberry Pi.


The Thingy connects to the Raspberry Pi with Bluetooth and uses it as an internet gateway. The Raspberry Pi runs the node.js scripts. The provided examples, which you can download below the video, include:

  • An example where all environmental sensor data is pushed to an online Firebase database.
  • An IFTTT example, where data form the Thingy triggers actions online.
  • An internet radio streaming example, where internet radio is streamed to the Nordic Thingy:52 and played back through the internal speaker.

The node.js scripts are multi-platform of course, and everything can be downloaded from this GitHub repository:
