Bluetooth and PDA
Hi. I’m doing a project where it would be very nice to run Max on a PDA and also have Max receive inputs from bluetooth telephones. Does anyone know if this is possible? I don’t have access to the equipment and I don’t want to spend a lot of money on it if it’s impossible.
if you look here
he did something
not on PDA, but on a hacked mobile phone .
I dont remember if it was with max, but certainly he should point you
u in the right direction
This may not be exactly what you’re looking for, but might be
of interest nontheless.
It’s basically a Java app that runs on a Bluetooth mobile phone
that allows you to control any OSC (OpenSound Control) capable
application, of which Max is one.

uh? to me not… thank you gary

It won’t give you Max directly, but in some ways Pure Data is more interesting, if even just from a philisophical point of view. I do remember reading an article about how to get MIDI out of your PDA, is isn’t difficult.
I don’t have a PDA nor have I used the Bluetooth protocol, but it is enticing at times. There are cheaper wireless systems available, so I suspended my research into using Bluetooth. It should be possible to reach a high level of connectivity with Bluetooth (cellphones, computers, etc.), but for some reason the necessary electronics are much more expensive than similar modules without brand-name protocols.
Some Bluetooth devices can communicate in "serial" protocol, compatible
Max won’t run, but its cousin Pd…
