Your Projects / A Bluetooth Speaker Array
« on: February 08, 2013, 06:22:02 PM »
I have no clue where one would begin with something like this or what the technical implications are. This is just an idea I had and I was hoping you guys could provide some insight.

I think it would be useful to be able to purchase multiple Bluetooth speakers and use software to designate each speaker as a separate channel. For instance, one could purchase five mono Bluetooth speakers and a Bluetooth subwoofer and designate each speaker as FL, FR, RL, RR, center, and bass for a 5.1 surround sound configuration.

The benefit of this is that any speaker system could be easily upgraded  to support more channels, clutter is removed, and speakers needn't be wired all the way to a central box. Also, a portable computer or phone could be paired or unpaired from the array without adjusting anything physical.

What do you guys think?

When opening files with common N64 ROM extensions.

Code: [Select]
    <action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW" />
    <category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
    <category android:name="android.intent.category.BROWSABLE" />
    <data android:mimeType="*/*" />
    <data android:pathPattern="*.*\\..?64" />

Not sure which activity this should be under or how the app currently deals with the ROM path (could be retrieved with getIntent().getData().getPath() in the activity this is applied to using this method).

I think that regex is correct... haven't tested. I'm trying to take filename.?64 where ? is a single character of any kind (this is helpful because of the variety of extensions for N64 ROM files such as *.n64, *.z64, etc.)

This gives the user the freedom to open ROMs using any file manager instead of just the browser built into the software.


The current icon is clever (the Android in place of the plus) but it looks god awful in Android 4.x where the rest of the icons are very simplistic and clean (no offence intended, it just looks out of place in the context of a different UI). How would you guys feel about something similar to this? (just needs a few tweaks)

Note the notification icon in the top left corner as well, which blends in with the ICS notifications.

The menus could be updated as well to contain some more simple graphics and reflect the interface of other Google apps.

Thank you, Paul, for this excellent piece of software!
