You can build your own devices that act like remote keyboards and HID devices for nearly any mobile device or computer with Bluetooth LE and the Adafruit HID library in CircuitPython!
Traditionally, the USB HID library has been used to send keyboard and mouse commands over a USB cable to a computer or mobile device. Now, you can cut that wire and do all the same things using BLE wirelessly!
This tutorial shows just one of the many exciting projects you can build with these techniques.
You'll create a remote five-key keyboard for sending keystrokes or even full words and sentences to your device, just as if you were using a highly specialized wireless keyboard.
Plus, we've added Bluetooth LE bonding support, so once you pair your devices, they'll automatically reconnect whenever you turn on the devices.
