Raspberry Pi Talks to Sony Ericsson liveview (wip)
The liveview is a bluetooth enabled watch device for use with android by Sony Ericsson . Launched a few years back it didn’t seem to really take off, even though recently we are now seeing the introduction of other manufacturers making smart watches. I bought one of these a few years ago on ebay and found it didn’t work great with my phone and has been sitting in the drawer until i thought can i use it for something else?
After search the Internet i came across this post and python code by Andrew de Quincey on his post here . Credit goes to him for posting his work!
I thought i would see if it work on my Raspberry Pi and it does very well in fact ! . Andrew de Quincey example worked well with only a few minor tweaks . His example comes with functions such as menu , text ,vibrate and images.
Getting Bluetooth working on the raspberry pi was pretty easy loads of guides out there.
Now what to make with it ???
When i have a project in mind i will post it along with the steps to get it working.
Any ideas what to use it for please leave it in the comments.
