A Bluetooth NVidia Shield driver is HERE

Few weeks ago i posted this sneak peak...

 

Since I just couldn't stand the fact that Shield Bluetooth support was promised, but never delivered. So I started a long... long... quest online and spend no less then 200 hours researching over the past few weeks, learning a lot about Bluetooth GATT profiles, services, characteristics etc. etc.

I tried implementing the driver in pure Javascript, but unfortunately it was not suitable due to pairing issues. I didn't stop there, and I can now say you that i have a working Bluetooth connection from my Raspberry Pi to my NVidia Shield TV.

In the end i managed to make it work; and the driver is now on GitHub!
