Hey guys, I like electronics but I want to learn about bluetooth interfacing. As a start I want to send a signal from a push button/sensor to another bluetooth receiver (phone for example). To be honest I have no idea where to start from. Can you help me out?

Is it possible to make a self powered solar/battery usb bluetooth dongle? Would a solar collector from a solar calculator provide enough power to energize the bluetooth dongle? I have a simple flexible usb keyboard that I would like to use with my htc smartphone. How do I add a usb bluetooth dongle to the keyboard.

I want a bluetooth device that connects to my phone as a standard bluetooth headset and allows any bluetooth headset to connect to it as if it were my phone. I am thinking of using it (or chaining a few of them) to create a larger area for my bluetooth headset for my phone. THANKS!? (Yes...I have seen the antenna hacks, but they don't allow me to boost the power of the signal like I need to. And, this device should also allow chaining to get the signal out a lot further and around metal obstacles.) Even better would be the ability to connect multiple devices to the extender so that multiple people could be on the same call on their bluetooth headsets simultaneously. (Yeah...it's getting deep in here. But the geek in me wants what it wants.)

I have a problem with my bluetooth module. I have interfaced it with my arduino board and it was working properly, but now all of a sudden it is not working at all. The led which ensures that it is turned on is not blinking neither my cell phone is searching it. Please help me to find out t he exact problem as i want to be sure before buying another module.

I am trying to develop a system used for data entry. all i am trying to do is have the ability to enter data aprox 12 characters long (1234567890#$). Have this data sent with bluetooth to a labtop after every entry either automatic or using one of the 12 keys to send. I dont really care what is used to achieve this even if its a cell phone.

I've got a pair of Bluetooth headphones that I'm pretty sure is about to kick the bucket; they don't hold a charge properly and they seems to be falling apart. Kinda what I get for being cheap I guess. I don't feel like spending money on getting a new LiPo battery to attempt to fix anything (especially considering shipping, etc. repairs will probably cost more than the headphones themselves), and so I was wondering if I could take out the Bluetooth chip inside and repurpose it for some other project with an Arduino or Raspberry Pi, probably for transmitting data from a sensor. A side note, if there are any ways I can refurbish the headphones themselves in a way that's worth the time, money, and effort, I'd like to hear about that, as well. Thank you!

It doesnt come with the licence when you install it
I'd like to make a number of smallish (say 0.75x1x2 inches) battery-powered Bluetooth boxes each of which connects to a momentary switch, and sends an RFCOMM or HID signal via Bluetooth on depression and another on release, and which will to communicate with an Android device. Because I want to make several of these, I want something super cheap and super simple to make. (The purpose is to make a simple wireless touch detection system for foil and epee fencing. Without on-target detection, it's not going to be great, but it will be an improvement over refereeing fully dry bouts, since at least one will have proper impact and lockout timing.) Here are options I've been thinking about: 1. One thing that would *almost* do the job is to buy one of those $3-5 ebay Bluetooth phone camera remotes, and just wire my switch to it. The only problem is that according to the ads I've seen, these Bluetooth phone camera remotes go to sleep in 2-10 minutes when paired (exact timing seems to depend on the model), and I would really rather avoid this (the 10 minutes is almost acceptable). If anybody knows of a way of keeping them paired and awake for a longer period of time (say, 15 minutes or permanently), I would love to hear. This would be the cheapest and simplest solution, and it comes with a case and battery (some units are even USB chargeable). 2. On the other extreme of the price range, I happen to have some extra Brainlink modules with an atxmega and an RN-42 module inside, and it wouldn't take long to customize the firmware to do the job. But the modules sell for $39 (though sometimes on sale for $20), and that seems overkill for something so simple. And they are a touch larger than I like (about 3 inches diameter, and an awkward shape). 3. Another option might be to use a cheap serial Bluetooth module without additional hardware, and wire the switch directly to CTS. Unfortunately, I don't think the cheap HC-06 modules support CTS, though I think the HC-07 does support it (but I don't know if I can access it as it's probably not one of the pins on the header). Moreover, there are two unanswered questions on Stackexchange on how to access CTS/RTS status from Android, so this might require using a laptop as the base station (which isn't ideal). 4. A very cheap microcontroller with a UART (or just bit-banging) plus a cheap Bluetooth module. This increases the complexity of the project, but might be the way to go. More specific recommendations are welcome, as I have no experience with the hardware side of dealing with a microcontroller (on the software side, I've spent a fair amount of time tweaking the firmware of the Brainlink unit).

Need a device that would pair with my cell phone and allow me to talk on the cell phone using the motorcycle intercom system. Has anyone done this?
I want to pair a headset with a small speaker so that I can speak into the headset and through the speaker over a distance, kinda like an intercom system or a one way walkie talkie. So I could put the speaker in something, for ex, like a trash can and trick people into thinking someone is in it.

I'll apologize in advance that my knowledge in bluetooth is fairly shallow at the moment. As seen in the recent Intuos4, bluetooth is definately possible. However, I was wondering if there's a way to convert other USB wacom tablets into bluetooth? What would it take to do it? I'm thinking is there some way to directly convert the USB data wiring to some sort of bluetooth module (while the power source comes from a 5v battery or something)? Or will I have to go through some sort of reverse engineering on the PCB to connect to a bluetooth module? Any information about specific bluetooth modules or even bluetooth in general will also be greatly appreciated!
