Blue-Bot, Bluetooth and Livecode

Post by richmond62 » Wed Apr 12, 2017 10:06 am

Let's start with a simple picture:

This is a Blue-Bot that can be controlled remotely from either a Mac or a Windows machine using what is,
frankly, an unattractive interface.

Now, having asked this sort of Q. many, many times in the past:

How would one go about doing that with LiveCode.

Why does it seem:

1. Difficult.

2. Everyone wants to shy away from this kind of thing re LiveCode?

The Blue-Bot people have very kindly sent me a document that sets out the Hex codes for sending commands to the Bot.

It state that one cannot use this for financial gain.

BUT, as their own software offerings are "not much cop" there is no earthly reason why someone (who? me?)
couldn't develop a FREE Bluetooth "thingy" with LiveCode to control it.

I'm linking to the PDF they sent me as I should like to "share the wealth": https://www.dropbox.com/s/ifcb542962a81 ... f.zip?dl=0

Oh, and, by-the-way; as far as I can tell the UUID of the device is 00001101-0000-1000-8000-00805f9b34fb

Hi Richmond,

Check this video about using LiveCode and Bluetooth
to control an Arduino board:

Did you ask Monte about his Bluetooth external?

Hello!

I am trying to build my own app with BlueBot, but I am having trouble finding out anything about how to set up my connection with BlueBot, and even I still didn't manage to get in touch with the BlueBot team...

Richmond62: would it be possible for you to share more information on how you got the app to communicate with a BlueBot? And if you have any other mail from the BlueBot people than the official sales@tts..., and you would be willing to share this, would that be possible?

Thanks for your input!! :)

Cheers, alj8

alj8, I'd gladly share any information I had, but owing to being very very busy, and family problems recently, I have done NOTHING.

HOWEVER, I am grateful to you for "kicking me" so I can get on with an attempt.
