Exploring Found Footage: iPhone and Wii Remote Insights

Recently, Matthias Ringwald, known for his work on iPhone Bluetooth technologies, unveiled BTstack 0.1 for the iPhone. A new video showcases the technology, displaying how an iPhone can connect with a WiiMote and utilize it as an input device.

While the system currently lacks OBEX support, Ringwald suggests it’s a step up from Apple’s limited offerings in this area.

Although I haven’t personally tested the software yet, it’s available for download at Google Code. I am eager to explore its capabilities.

BTstack operates through the L2CAP protocol to establish device connections. It’s important to note that this software is intended for jailbroken iPhones and includes a Bluetooth daemon, BTdaemon, which developers can integrate into their applications.
