As one of the eight outstanding Chinese startups that TechNode brought to TechCrunch Disrupt SF this year, Beijing-based Sensoro is the developer of Yunzi, a smart wireless sensor enabled by Apple’s iBeacon technology that is run on Bluetooth Low Energy technology, aka Bluetooth 4.0 or Bluetooth Smart.

The device works as both a sensor and a signal by detecting the location and movement of nearby smart devices, as well as transmitting information to them. It is sold at US$65.99 for each set of three Yunzi.

Inspired by chess piece of Chinese game Weiqi or Go, Yunzi features an elegant and sleek design with dual-color injection modeling decorated by high strength alloy keel. With low-power acceleration chip and light sensor embedded, Yunzi understands the exact position and surrounding environmental conditions. The data collected can be used to interact with the mobile apps that has embedded Yunzi SDK.
