I did a little project to modify a VB controller to use Bluetooth. The idea was to make a wireless version of what my VB controller USB adapter does. Here's v0: https://youtu.be/ZdRXIXxxExE

It's quite heavy with the 6 AA battery pack so like I mention in the video I may design a slimmer battery pack to lighten it up. Maybe even add inductive charging. Some external status LEDs would also be nice.

This current version just sends serial bytes to the PC. I can update to keyboard keys for mapping software but I'd really like to support a HID gamepad like my USB adapter. The current Bluetooth module will only support HID keyboard or I can make my own receiver dongle to map the serial bytes to a HID gamepad like my USB adapter. Still deciding. I like the last approach better.

This would go nicely with a BlueTooth receiver/AC adapter module for the VB itself.

Cool project, Kevin! I can't wait to see what else you do with it.

It would be also handy for controlling a drone or hexapod

OK, updated for Keyboard HID so now it can be used directly in emulators like Mednafen. The particular board I'm using with integrated bluetooth will only support HID for keyboard so that's about it for this project.

You have to use a CSR 4.0 BT receiver as well. Once you have that everything works great. :-)

I'll put something up on my site so people can replicate it.
