I'm wanting to do a project with a Raspberry Pi acting as a Bluetooth keyboard and/or mouse. The Pi would be connected to a touchscreen display, and I would have a virtual keyboard on the screen that I could tap on.

I have a Raspberry Pi 3 B and a Raspberry Pi Zero W, and am open to using either one for this.

Is it even possible? I don't see any reason why, by creating the right signals, you couldn't make the Raspberry Pi send bluetooth signals...but I'm not very educated on this.

I've seen this post for the keyboard problem, but working with a mouse might be harder?

    why don't you start with the keyboard project that you linked to and see if you can make it work ..... if the keyboard works, then expand it to include a mouse .......... note: if you read your post, you will see that you have not asked any real questions .... you asked two questions, but they have a yes/no answer – jsotola Jan 26 at 5:12
  • AFAIK evdev is common for all HIDs: keyboards, mice, joysticks etc. – Dmitry Grigoryev Jan 26 at 7:30
  • @jsotola yea, I do see that. I'll work on it. – Caleb H. Jan 26 at 13:59
