Testing the MiKey functionalities without the MiKey

MiKey

MiKey

If you are like me, the unfortunate few people here in this forum who still do not have a MiKey, you can stop waiting till your neck becomes longer than the giraffe. This morning, a weird idea came to mind and after some simple testing, I've found a way to use the functionalities of the MiKey! It is kinda expensive though, because you will need a pair of Mi Earphones, which in Singapore costs more than $20 shipped. Example this,

MiEarphones

MiEarphones



But, if you already have the earphones, why not give a shot and have some fun?


First, you will need to download the MiKey app from Xiaomi Market. Installing it onto my Mi3 was a breeze. That's if you understand chinese. :) If not, you can install this version, but the app is an older version 1.5.2 and your phone will prompt you to update. Don't or you will get the chinese version and you are back to square one. Anyway, once installed, you will see this icon.

and you are all set!



Plug in your Mi Earphones and instead of the usual headphones plugged in message, it now asks you for what you have plugged into the 3.5mm jack.

Question

Tap on MiKey(米键) and have some MiKey fun! I have mine set up for camera and torchlight. There are 3 buttons on your MiEarphones. Use this one to simulate the MiKey.

A short note about taking photos with the MiKey. It does not activate the camera app and shoots almost instantly (slight lag). Imagine how cool that is, you can be a spy sitting by the roadside cafe, pretending to be listening to your favourite music, when in fact you are taking photos of the couple at the next table having a secret meeting! Another thing I have to let you know though, when you select MiKey as the device plugged into your phone, you will not be able to listen to music through the Earphones, effectively making it a giant MiKey.  


ps. Those of you who have a Samsung or Apple earphones, can try to see if it works too!

Hey hey hey, actually I had tried this already using a earphone since its the same 3.5m jack.
What I did was I dont have bluetooth shutter for monopod so wired the Piston earbud to the pod and use it as the clicker since it can extend until the pod rod so its easy to take selfies now. haha


PS: I dont have the monopod now but I replicate how it looks for you to picture out. :)
