RFCOMM/SPP Library for Arduino

July 30th, 2012 102 comments

This is yet again a new library for Arduino.
But this time it is a speciel one and a library I have though about making for a long time since I wrote the PS3 Bluetooth Library. It is the RFCOMM/SPP library, in short it is a virtual serial port via Bluetooth, which means you can now communicate with your Arduino via Bluetooth using a normal terminal application on your computer, smartphone etc. It has been confirmed working with Windows 7, Mac OS X, Linux (Ubuntu 12.04) and several Android devices.
