i am working on a medical project that uses VR for rehabilitation of people with certain kinds of traumas, physical and emotional (cant reveal more info about it).
I would like to know if there is a way to pair an Arduino or Raspberry with a Bluetooth module, so when i hit an object or do something in VR, the raspberry or arduino can read a 1,2,3,4 or a couple of chars.
My guess is
1) Pair the oculus quest android to the arduino (can this be done?, or is it only for gamepads)
2) Use a wifi server and send messages over HTTP or OSC.
3) connecting directly to USB if possible, a long usb cable wouldn't bother that much.
To me, bluetooth would be the best one because it wouldnt require to use an external wifi , router, and extra program.
Any ideas? someone tried this already?.
Im working with Unity and Oculus SDK, but this is a platform agnostic solution, and there are many people already asking about this.
Also, can the arduino be seen as a "gamepad" somehow? so i send and receive input , like cheating the quest.
