Hey I am looking for an App-controllable Bluetooth USB token that would emulate USB keyboard so I could connect to it from my Android or iPhone via Bluetooth, and then press a button in the App and then the Token would type passwords for me or maybe some other custom commands / arbitrary text that I would configure inside the App.
Do you know any device that could be used as described above? Thank you!
It looks like this dongle is doing something similar to what we want. But it costs almost $50 http://www.intelletto.com/products?id=3004
This Nordic USB dongle is what could be programmed into what I need. The Google's OpenSK project could be extended to include this app-controlled Bluetooth Keyboard Emulator. Here is the MakerDiary's board version: https://wiki.makerdiary.com/nrf52840-mdk-usb-dongle/opensk/ https://github.com/makerdiary/nrf52840-mdk-usb-dongle
Here is the original nRF52840 USB Dongle board directly from Nordic. It looks very similar to MakerDiary's board, also it looks like MakerDiary board is a bit smaller in size. Anyways, here is Nordic Dongle: https://www.nordicsemi.com/Software-and-tools/Development-Kits/nRF52840-Dongle
Both MD and Nordic boards are avaialble for sale at around $10 - nice!
From our prospective, this is a dongle that translates Bluetooth keyboard into USB HID (aka standard USB Keyboard). Then, in theory, any Bluetooth Keyboard Emulator App should be able to work with such dongle, even in BIOS, even before OS boots up and loads Bluetooth drivers. Surprisingly, it seems like these HID Proxy dongles are rare
I think what I want could also be programmed using ESP32 usb dongles and some software similar to what is used in these projects below. Just including these links so I have it for a reference:
[TW#13919] Bluetooth HID implementation progress? https://github.com/espressif/esp-idf/issues/782
Solo Key - hacker edition - does NOT support Bluetooth, so it is not an option for this project https://solokeys.com/collections/all/products/solo-hacker
USB Ninja - somewhat relevant, but it looks like it is based on Arduino which is I do not think is a good fit here. But it has Android app that talks to USB ninja over bluetooth, so might be worth a look https://www.crowdsupply.com/rfid-research-group/usbninja
Bleuio - can this be programmed into what we want? Maybe yes... https://bleuio.com/index.php#
Serial Port Profile (SPP) - The Serial Port Profile is a Bluetooth profile that allows for serial communication between a Bluetooth device and a host/slave device. With this profile enabled, you can connect to a Bluetooth module through a serial terminal. This can be used for configuration purposes or for communication purposes. Some pages above talk about "SPP to HID" so it is good to know what is SPP in context of Bluetooth
HID Proxy - the full term is "Bluetooth dongle with a HID Proxy mode" - so I think this is a dongle that translates Bluetooth keyboard into USB HID (aka standard USB Keyboard). Then, in theory, any Android Bluetooth Keyboard Emulator App should be able to work with such dongle, even in BIOS, even before OS boots up and loads Bluetooth drivers. Surprisingly, it seems like these HID Proxy dongles are rare ...
