Blue Dot allows you to control your Raspberry Pi projects wirelessly - it’s a Bluetooth remote and zero boiler plate (super simple to use :) Python library.
Install and usage is really simple:
Install the Python library:
sudo pip3 install bluedot
Pair your Raspberry Pi
Write some code:
from bluedot import BlueDot bd = BlueDot() bd.wait_for_press() print("You pressed the blue dot!")
Press the Blue Dot
See the getting started guide to ‘get statred’!
Why be restricted by such vague positions like top and bottom though: you can get the exact (x, y) position or even the angle and distance from centre where the dot was pressed.
Its not all about when the button was pressed either - pressed, released or moved they all work.
The dot doesn’t have to be blue, or a dot, you can change its colour, make it square or give it a border.
