A wireless USB receiver for Android devices
There are quite a few solutions that allow users to expand the features of their Android device; however, most of them fall short of the InputStick. Curious? Well, InputStick is a wireless USB receiver that plugs into a computer and establishes a link between that computer and your Android device by simply running the companion app on a device running on at least Android 2.3. You can now use your mobile device as a keyboard, mouse, game controller, presentation remote, bar code scanner and even a password manager.
InputStik measures 57x19x9 mm and weighs only 8 grams. It has the USB 2.0 (full speed) interface. The range of the Bluetooth 2.1 device is up to 10 metres. The device works on Android 2.3 or later and needs at least one available USB port to function. Further, the USB host must supply at least 100 mW of power. The advantage of InputStik over other solutions lies in the fact that it is compatible with any USB-enabled hardware and works out-of-the-box.
There will be several Input Stick compatible applications available for free: Remote Controller, Password Manager, Presentation Remote, Barcode Scanner, Gamepad, etc. To use InputStick, you will have to install the InputStick Utility app on your Android device. It will guide you, step-by-step, through the pairing process, allow you to manage all your InputStick devices, upgrade firmware if necessary (via Bluetooth), and provide the background services needed for communication between apps and InputStick. The available Android API will allow you to use InputStick in your own applications.
