Bluetooth: Invented by Eric Haartsen at Sony Ericsson in Emmen......nice protocol for close range (20 meter max or so) communication between devices....but Dutch invention so use at own risk (I'm Dutch and a coder so I should know right....) since it's not that safe....
WiFi: International standard of wireless communication.....much larger range (have had succesfull connects from a mobile device standing at the Veemkade in Amsterdam to a router on the Java island).
Panoshoot, not just a WiFi dongle but a dongle complete with a webserver....(probably a small Linux clone running on an ARM processor). Great stuff in theory...since this way any device with a browser (capable of running Java in the right version should be able to connect).
So the proces is simple. Plug the Panoshoot dongle into the Panogear port.....connect the camera to the panogear with the appropriate cable....test with the joystick on the Panoshoot wether the head responds to the movement of the joystick (if not cry wolf at Kolor's office since you should be entitled to a new dongle since it is DOA or you have no batteries in the Panogear.....in which case you technohead needs a reboot (the one on your shoulders right).
The get a nice Wifi capable device....anyone will do and make a connection to the head. Since the head does not use authentication (a security risk but not that big
) starting up the wireless menu (the little stepped icon in Windows) then select the Panoshoot option and surfto the default IP adres of the dongle by entering the URL panoshoot.com or the IP-adres 192.168.245.1.....you should see a menu and you should be able to fill in camera profiles and the works....
Where did I get my info.....ah, believe it or not but there is a nice (as in I've seen worse right Kolor) manual on the www.panoshoot.com
website (not to be confused with the page loaded onto the mobile device by the dongle). You can download it here:http://www.panoshoot.com/index.php/download
in English, German, French and Spannish......now do I think this is a good as the T&C controler...yes and no, advantage wireless operation, disadvantages wireless operation. But both seem to have all the hoopla needed to sucseed. I would opt for the T&C controler (if I was using a Panogear (which I'm not) and if I wasn't developing my own controler), because it seems to me the more simple technology.......my controler will have WiFi operation as a future option....just to be able to use it on a pole. But it still will be locked firmly to the motors via cables, and will not be entirely based on WiFi.
