Wireless Data Transmitting

  1. Apr 8, 2008 #1
    Is there any way to transmit USB data over the air easily?

    you could get a usb wireless NIC :) I really know nothing about what you are trying to do, but thats an easy way to do short distances.

    i am trying to connect 2 ti-89 titanium calculators together wirelesly, but with the same data that is being sent over the USB cable. Is there a way I can easily do this (also on the cheap)

    I would also like portable and be able to make it myself out of sample chips

    Like would I be able to make it a simple circuit. I am fairly good with electronics.

    You can buy off the shelf bluetooth transceivers that will probably solve your problem, but as far as I know, there is no standard for "wireless USB."

    There is, it just hasn't exactly caught on yet:.

    I actually didn't realize it was available yet. I may need to get one of these so I don't have to have a 30' cable running out to my telescope anymore...

    how much will those run me?

    Hopefully, you're not using this for cheating purposes :p

    no, I just have wanted to do this for a while and finally have the time to do something like it. Also, there is a really cool chat program for the 89 titanium via link cable. I want to do the same thing like between desks to compare notes and stuff. not to cheat

    "Like would I be able to make it a simple circuit. I am fairly good with electronics."

    > then we can try RF circuits, if u can move audio with them , then u can also move data. I have also been willing to give it a try a year ago and this is the first topic i found about it. i beleave RF circuit can help around this. lets give it a go.

    well iv been able to replace a single usb cable for my usb webcam with an RF circuit for a short distance about 5m, i can still view a clear image. i will make three more circuits for other 3 cables and see if its real wireless.
  16. May 29, 2008 #15
    in total i will need 8 of the circuits (that is: 4 to pc and 4 to cam), am not that good with circuits but i hope someone will help intergrate all of them into two circuits ( 1 to pc and 1 to cam).
