Post NXT + Kindle Fire
Does anyone know how to send Bluetooth information between a kindle fire and NXT? Is it possible to without hacking or programming the kindle? I know this sounds kind of vague, but I have never used Bluetooth before and really need help. This is just a crazy idea I had and want to know if it will work.

Thanks,

CoderA

AFAIK it's possible. There might already be apps for it, but idk. Or write your own app. 8)

I don't feel like writing a robotc for Kindle fire app! I think I know how to send information from the NXT to the kindle, but the other way not so much. By the way, now that I think about it, a robotc for Kindle fire app sounds pretty nice!

It will only work if the Kindle is capable of BT SPP (Serial Port Profile). The NXT can only pretend to be a serial port over BT. The EV3 is capable of much more.
