Bluetooth Relay Project:
Develop a USB to bluetooth adapter for my mechanical keyboard. Using a USB host shield, have an Arduino Pro Mini read keyboard usb commands and repeat them over bluetooth.
I have minimal experience with Arduino and circuitry, from my perspective this project seems pretty straight forward plug and play of the hardware components.
I plan to use the following hardware:
- Arduino Pro Mini 328 - 3.3V/8MHz
- Sparkfun Products: 11114
Bluetooth HID module
- BlueSMiRF HID
- Sparkfun Product: 10938 ($25)
USB Host Shield
- USB Host Shield for Arduino Pro Mini
- circuitsathome ($20)
- USB Phone power block
- Output: 5v 1000mA
Total Cost: $55
Does anyone have any comments/suggestions/concerns/words of wisdom before I start to order stuff?
