    So i want to use my joycon grip on my pc, but my pc has no Bluetooth functionality. Luckily, i have a smaller shittier computer that does have Bluetooth. My question is, is there a program that can take inputs on one pc, and send them to the next?

    Erm... The steam controller comes with a USB dongle that outputs what the controller needs to function (i assume Bluetooth). So there's no need for an inconvenient route. :)

    In answer to the question: i dunno, but i doubt it. You're probably better off with a program that goes above'just' that and does everything. Meaning: use a program like TeamViewer to take control the pc. You'll probably have to set the controller to keys, because the client pic doesn't have a controller connected.

    Interesting concept, but lag is going to be an issue. Easier just to buy a bluetooth dongle.
