Feature Request: Core Bluetooth

The subject says it all. In my particular case, I’m looking at the low-power stuff. From what I can tell, unlike many things Apple is very much open on this, they fully support the standards and actively use it, so there should be no political/app-store objections, just how to interface the API to Codea and of course your time, which I don’t take for granted.

This all came up because I got a wild hair for a project I was working on, and I said “Hey, if Codea has access to this, It’ll be perfect!” - alas, no such luck currently.

Heh - as I type this, my hind-brain says “Hey, suggest they figure out a way to expose the Objective-C API call mechanism directly, so we could just make arbitrary Objective-C calls”, but I won’t go there. Not even sure it’s possible, much less feasible.

Best to all of you, I wish I could spend more time here but my real-world workload is insane.

Yeah Bluetooth would be good I was thinking it could be used to connector to the logo mind storms NXT

Edit: sorry I can’t typ on my ipod

I agree, Bluetooth would be great! Especially when interfacing with micro controllers.

I’ll second this request. I’ve just discovered the BLE Shield from Red Bear Labs (http://redbearlab.com/bleshield/). It lets you easily make an Arduino-based BTLE slave, which you can control from any BTLE host (such as an iPad!). They have a nice SDK, and there’s a great instructable about writing your own app for it here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Talk-to-an-Arduino-With-an-iOS-device-using-Blueto/step2/Arduino-Sketch/ …but that requires Cocoa and ObjC, which makes me sad. If you could talk to this thing from Codea, that would be such an awesome tool!
