InputStick acts as a “man in the middle” between your Android/iOS device and a USB host. Bluetooth interface allows any Bluetooth-enabled Android smartphone to connect to InputStick, at the same time, standard USB interface allows to communicate with any USB host:InputStick offers following USB interfaces:
- mouse (up to 8 buttons, scroll wheel)
- consumer control (volume control, media playback control, launching system applications, power management)
- gamepad: 16 buttons, 4 axes (technically, this is a part of consumer control interface)
USB host does not see any difference between InputStick and standard, physical USB multimedia keyboard.
Here is an example, how Windows 7 sees InputStick:
It was not necessary to install any additional software or drivers on the PC. Everything took just a few seconds and no user interaction was necessary. Just like when regular USB keyboard is plugged in.
