Hello,

I am working on an add on for my robot Roberto-The All In One Robot™. I am buying this touchscreen http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/5-7-TFT-LCD-320-x-240-QVGA-Hitachi-Screen-SX14Q004_W0QQitemZ160256343616QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item160256343616&_trkparms=72%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C65%3A12&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14
and programing a wireless wall fob. I got this idea from a light switch thing. (Pic at bottom) And instead of the 4 buttons just use a touchscreen. It will send bluetooth signals to the robot and whatever command I touch on the screen, it will do. For example, I go to the wireless wall fob, and press scan area. Then it brings me to another menu. It says: are you sure?. I press yes. It asks for an authorization code, (default is 1234), and  then, if the code is right, it says command accepted. It then stays on that screen for 4 seconds, and goes back to the home menu. I can program the touchscreen to do the commands, but I don't know if I can establish a bluetooth connection without using a computer. If you can help, it would be appreciated.

Thank you for your time,

Roberto

EDIT: I threw in a layout picture of my robot. I couldn't help it.
