Do you have a video of this thing working?
Pretty cool project! I saw a few way back when that were based on Arduinos, but with a Pi you could make this thing rock. Can't wait to see the vid!
JA, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. We love that someone wants to build something similar, and will help you as much as we can! Haha becasue that's what we do at the Check 6 Labs :-)
Order one of these, but make sure it's long enough for the panel to the PCB:http://www.ebay.com/itm/6-Mini-PCI-U-FL-IPX-to-RP-SMA-Female-Antenna-WiFi-Pigtail-Cable-US-Stock-/121431072509?hash=item1c45db1efd:g:-HUAAOSw-jhUDQ4H
You have to split the cable - there's two leads that go through it. Strip them both, and when you get to the bluetooth board, scratch off the gold-colored antenna traces on the PCB. Solder the "positive" lead to the scratch off mark, and the ground to the PCB ground. Adding an antenna is huge for this build!
