Data packets are neatly organized by color coding and displayed on a single screen; hacker aesthetic included. This powerful utility is a "must have" for those wanting to explore the inner-working of Bluetooth Low Energy protocol, debug Bluetooth devices, reverse engineer, or to simply become aware of the hidden information being transmitted nearby.
