Bluetooth Headset Hack
My mum wanted to play some music from my desktop computer on her stereo(which doesnt have usb support but has stereo jack audio input) - and I was looking for reasons to hack stuff.
so i took old broken bluetooth headset (that my ex broke...bla bla ) and hacked it to include a stereo jack - and now she just plugs it in and plays the tunes(audio streaming) :)

Future improvements:
1. Write a computer program to include voice control so she can just change music or switch of the computer off from her room using a voice command.
2.Hack the stereo to charge the bluetooth headset without unpluging it. (she probably wont let me do that lol )

Step 6: ...

Solder two wires to the stereo jack
- bridging the top 2 connections for left and right(black wire ) - then ground wire on third connection (white wire)

This is because the bluetooth headset has only two wires(mono output instead off stereo left and right )
*You might also want to snip off the microphone wires for privacy - but I didn't because I actually need that microphone for future hacks

Step 7: ...
