help me get started with an offline motion feedback application
We were hoping to use the MetaWear RG as a motion feedback device. The idea is simple, you wear the metawear in the wristband and when you position your arm in a certain way the vibrating motor gets activated for half a second. The idea was to implement this so it can be used without a phone present.
We thought this would be possible because the website stated that you programmed the device using a phone, but after reading parts of the documentation it seems that the device can only operate when used in combination with an iPhone or android device. So using it without a phone present might be difficult. For the record I am familiar with C and writing embedded applications, but Java and android development is new for me. I'm not opposed to learning java however if it is required.
So my questions are as follows:
1.) Is it possible to program the device so that it can give simple motion feedback without the direct presence of a smartphone?
2.) Is it required to program in java or can I load some relatively simple custom firmware on the device?
Thanks in advance,
