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.

Punch Through can help sponsor your hackathon or meetup. We typically provide hardware, but we are also open to other forms of sponsorship. We have previously sponsored events like IoT Hack Day, IoT Fuse and Arduino Group of Minnesota. Punch Through especially encourages events for underrepresented groups such as women and people of color. Contact us about sponsoring an event.


We have in-house experts in Bluetooth Low Energy, iBeacons, hardware development, software development, prototyping, Arduino, and much more! Contact us about speaking at an event.


We offer workshops on the LightBlue Bean, Bluetooth Low Energy and iBeacons. Whether you are learning basic hardware hacking or want to learn about the different BLE protocols as an advanced user, we can help you out on the way. Contact us about arranging a workshop.
