Software Application

The DiABlu System is an application that detects the presence of Bluetooth enabled devices and communicates their names and ids to other applications.

It's intended to be used in art instalations by digital artists who wish to give their audience a novel way to interact with their pieces.

Besides informing the application of the names of the currently present devices, the DiABlu system has also a mobile application that can be installed in a Java enabled phone that will allow the user to transmit data to the final application.

The system communicates via the OSC protocol so that applications written in Max/MSP, Pure Data, Processing, Flash, or any other with OSC support , will be able to use this system.

DiABlu is a project conceived by Jorge Cardoso at the School of Arts of the Portuguese Catholic University and it's being developed by Nuno Rodrigues at the Research Center for Science and Technology in Art (CITAR).

This is an Open Source Project. It's licensed under GPL 2.0.

The project source is hosted on Google Code.

There is also a discussion group where you can post any questions you might have.
