Got a general area of the world in mind? Got at least a vague description of the project?

I'm located in New York however anyone who can meet remotely and speak English should be able to assist just fine.  Also, the project will include some USB passthrough from a keyboard to a computer as a HID if anyone is familiar with this type of work.

Hi everyone,
I'm looking for someone here very familiar with arduino coding and design.  I have a basic idea of how something I'm looking to create must be setup and coded however I'm not sure on some of the specifics.  I would be willing to pay for work on this sort if necessary and it should only be a couple hours worth of work.

Any chance anyone here knows anyone, a company, or feel you would be interested in doing something like this?  Please shoot me a message if you're interested.

Thanks for the help!

I didn't think the teensy was capable of being a USB HOST, so I don't think it can read a USB keyboards values--it can just pretend to be a USB keyboard for a computer.

I would suggest getting a USB to PS2 adapter and then reading the keyboard using the PS2 keyboard library.

Hmm, sounds simple enough, how exactly would I go about using the PS2 keyboard library?  Wouldn't it make more sense to use the standard USB port the USB Host Sheild has?  I apologize for the basic questions I'm new to arduino programming.

Hi everyone,
I'm attempting to make a small arduino device that can be hooked up to an external keyboard and perform actions based off the keyboard input.  For example if I type F1 or something to that extent it may toggle an LED indicator for now and get more complex as time goes on.  I'd like to retain all the keyboards functionality if possible in case I wish to use shift or even caps locks keys in the future.  This input would not have to be forwarded to the computer, this will be a stand alone device.

I'm not really sure how to go about this.  I have a USB host shield and the Arduino Uno board.  I've looked over a few sample scripts online but most are over complicated and do not have something that would be very useful here.  Does anyone happen to have or know where I can find any sample code that will be useful, or have any advice on how to move forward here?

Ah, great point!  I'll give that a shot and let you know how it works.

Thanks for the help!
6  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Arduino Uno and Bluesmurf HID Coding Issue on: June 05, 2012, 04:18:23 pm
Hi Everyone,
I'm fairly new to working with Arduino's as well as the Bluesmurf HID.  I began a new project a few days ago and have been running into a bit of trouble.  I'm attempting to use my arduino as a BT HID allowing me to type on my computer or cell phone using it.  I was able to piece together the arduino and wire the Bluesmurf unit just fine.  When i powered it up I had no problem connecting my iPhone to the bluetooth connection.

I ran into problems when I attempted to send some text.  I attemtped to use the following code from but kept receiving errors stating that there was an unexpected "\" in the program.  I eventually gave up with this and tried some new code.

void setup() {
Serial.begin(115200); // begin serial communication at 115200 baud rate
void loop() {
Serial.println(“hello world”); // write hello world
delay(1000); // delay one second

I then began using the code seen here:;topic=99.0 and compiled it without any issues.  I ran into trouble when sending it though.  Instead of sending the reapeating text it only sent a few random characters (which seemed to vary each time) once and then end the application.

I'm a bit confused as to what's going on here and greately appreciate it if someone could assist me in understanding what may be causing these issues and how to properly send keyboard inputs via bluetooth.

Thanks in advanced for the help!
