Hi

I would like to create an iBeacon stack, I know it is BLE and has a format that can be discovered with a bluetooth sniffer.
Does anyone want to join in this project?

Thank you

I found a book that had the data content for the ibeacon packet

I am working toward implementing iBeacon on the CC2541, a dev board and JTAG can be obtained from TI for about $90. The project is on hold at the moment, but I will update progress as I make it here. It looks very promising, much of the source code for the demo is available for free from TI.

I took the lazy way out and chose to run my AltBeacons on Raspberry Pis with USB BLE dongles, but that means each beacon costs about $50. Fine for now as I only need a couple, but I'd definitely be interested in contributing to a project capable of publishing arbitrary beacon packets.

you can one buy a Texas Instruments CC2541 based i-beacon. Pricing starts from 8 USD in China.

I used a cheap Asus dongle. I forget which one it was, but it was under $10 shipped.

I've been pretty happy with RedBearLab's BLE hardware.  I've been using their BLE Mini implementation for many projects recently, which also has it's own iBeacon firmware available.  They also have purpose-built iBeacon hardware available: http://redbearlab.com/ibeacon

Their support is better than most and it seems to be reasonably popular within the Arduino community so there is a reasonable amount of experience with it available out there on the forums.

Personally, I've enjoyed working with their BLE Mini hardware the most as their open-source "Biscuit" firmware has been fairly straight-forward to modify and compile.
