Bluetooth and PDA

    Jun 09 2006 | 12:15 pm
    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.

      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.

      Try this link:
      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 with [serial].

      Max won't run, but its cousin Pd...
