BlueputDroid is an application that allows to use your device as a remote mouse and keyboard for your PC/PS3.


Here it is a short demonstration (no audio since I don't speak english well ):



Please note that root is required for this application.

Quick tutorial:
  • Open the application and click on the start button (top/left button ">")
  • Check for errors in the log window
  • IMPORTANT: if you got the error "invalid or inactive bluetooth device", your device is not supported and your only option is to try a different ROM like Cyanogenmod (I cannot fix that because the problem is at "kernel" level).
  • Pair your device with an host of your choice* like in video 1 (Linux) or 2 (PS3)
  • Once paired, click on the lens button (secondo top/left) to refresh the available bluetooth devices
  • Click on a device of your choice to establish a connection
  • Once connected a green screen should appear (like in video n°1)
  • Single press to simulate the left mouse button (the background should change in blue)
  • Double press to simulate the right mouse button (the background should change in red)
  • Hit "menu" to show/hide/change the keyboard
*Tested hosts:
  • PS3: works
  • Linux: works (tested on Ubuntu 10.10)
  • Windows 7: not working (I'm actually trying to fix it)
  • MAC: ? (reported to not work)
  • Vizio Internet TV: works (thanks to Trevor for reporting)
Here it is a preliminary list of supported/unsupported devices (need to be tested) thanks to Wiimote Controller's author since the "requirements" are the same (the detailed problem is reported here).

Thanks to all of you for your support.
I hope to be ready to release an "alpha" version next week but it will be very unstable and not user friendly
I updated the first post with the "requirements" for testing this app.
