Brainstorming - Teamspeak PTT Bluetooth Device Answered
Gurus of the Tech World,
First off, I'm browsed through a lot of great idea and I've got to say, you all are geniuses. Hopefully, someone can help steer me in the right direction. I have made a few Windows Phone apps, made a few HTML websites and some networking fundamentals, but I've never really made a device... much less soldered a board.
With that said, I want my first project to be a Bluetooth Push-to-Talk (PTT) button for Teamspeak. I have a Bluetooth headset with a microphone for Teamspeak (VOIP PC Application) so I can hear people speaking while being away from the computer but I do not have a way to communicate back using the Push-to-Talk method.
So, what I want to do is make a small Bluetooth device, maybe powered by a 9V, with a single PTT button, and maybe an ON/OFF switch to save power. My thought is to program it so that it send a keystroke to my computer for the duration that the PTT button is pressed (CTRL would be ideal). This is something that I want to make, using as much of my brain as possible and the least amount of prefabricated merchandise ("omg, just buy a bluetooth dongle and plug it into a button. ta-da").
I'm sure that this is something you guru's can do blindfolded, but, please, point me in the right direction... and use baby words.
