The LightBlue Bean is a legacy product and is no longer being sold

The Bean loader apps will continue to function, but no further updates will be provided. Updates to your OS may change Bluetooth functionality and therefore may break the functionality of the Bean apps.

Hardware files are available here.

We're proud to have helped people prototype their products with the Bean, and for all the incredible things they've built. The Bean was an incredibly fun and challenging product to work on, and we will miss it..

Our goal at Punch Through is to help companies develop products. Our consulting services and software products have been growing so quickly that they require our full focus and attention. If you're developing a connected product, we'd love to help in any way possible.

Software Downloads

Bean Loader for Windows and OS X relies on the Arduino IDE to compile your Arduino sketches and program the Bean.

On iOS and Android, Bean Loader uses the Bean Cloud Compiler to compile your Arduino sketches.


Warning: The Windows Loader available on the Windows store is discontinued, we are moving all support to a cross-platform solution, starting with the CLI Loader.





Platform SDKs

We want to help you build native apps for your platform. Talk to Bean over BLE with these SDKs:
