Bluetooth shield for Arduino

Posted on Tuesday, October 1st, 2013 in Arduino, open source by DP


Boris Landoni from Open Electronics writes about a new open source bluetooth shield for Arduino:

Here’s an application to control the brightness of an RGB LED strip wirelessly (via Bluetooth) using a smartphone. The whole project is presented in a dedicated Bluetooth  shield for Arduino and a RGB shield.

    an RGB LED controlled from a mobile phone ?? IDK why but it sounds familiar :D

    anyway… it does seem to simplify configuring the module but it’s something you do only once…

    kerimil, what’s your problem? every time I read something about Arduino, Android, and Bluetooth you are always there with your jabs and put downs. Do you think you have a monopoly on Bluetooth and Android? Grow up, man. You are becoming an infamous net troll.

      How is pointing out that the module has to be configured only once a put down?? You say there are always ‘jabs and put downs’ in my comments so just quote them – you said there are plenty of them so you shouldn’t have any problems with that :-)

      There is nothing wrong in shameless self promotion dave or boris or whatever is your name, but you’re asking 28 euro for a bluetooth shield and another 10 euro for an RGB shield and that’s highway robbery.

    FWIW, I didn’t see it as a jab or a put down, if anything I thought he was pointing out that it was easier to configure this way. I also sat there and had a weird sense of déjà vu about it.

    That article on Open Electronics looks good. I didn’t read it all, but what I read was quite informative.
