    Is it possible to create a Homebrew that supports Bluetooth and allow you to play games and stuff using wireless headphones?

    why
    3ds doesn't have built in bluetooth, so it wouldn't work

    There's no hardware in the 3DS for Bluetooth. It can't be done, unless you're a l33t h4xx0r, and can modify the hardware and software of the console to have it.

    I saw somewhere on the net a aux->bluetooth->aux connectors to use normal headphones wirelessly. I dont think you can do something better with the 3ds, unless you do hardmod

    There is at least one DS game, which includes Bluetooth, so in theory, if we communicate with it, it could be possible, but I think we would need to patch at least the ARM11 kernel or even the ARM9 and ARM11 kernel, to make this possible.

    It would be cool if Gateway or Sky3DS were able to incorporate a Bluetooth receiver into their carts.

    Yeah, Pokémon Typing Adventure is the only current "BlueTooth dongle" that exists for 3DS and it probably wasn't popular enough to warrant looking into, since so few people are primed to actually take advantage of it if anybody made BT homebrew using it. It's not clear yet how those Pokémon Z-Ring things are going to work as yet (those light-up/rumbling bracelets that interact with the upcoming games). Depending on how those connect, some homebrew wireless support might be possible, but if it's just Wi-Fi or something then that doesn't get the homebrew community anywhere.

    Well considering the Pokemon typing game was a DS title, that means you HAD to have a physical copy of the title, meaning that the bluetooth protocol that communicates with the keyboard must have been built right into the DS cartridge, since we know the DS family did not have bluetooth built right into the handheld.

    I mention this because 3DS titles are obviously available digitally, and of course Sun and Moon will be available in that format as well. This seems like a clear indicator to me that the bracelets therefore can't possibly rely on bluetooth, unless you'd only be able to use a bracelet with physical copies of the game, but that would be a very dumb way to needlessly cut potential sales and profits of bracelets from owners of the digital copies of the games that might have been interested in getting a bracelet specifically for their connectivity features with the games. In other words, I'm like 95% sure the bracelets will communicate with the 3DS through a wi-fi protocol and not bluetooth.
