Have you ever wished your phone had just one more hardware feature?
Perhaps you’ve thought of the ideal accessory for your phone: a specialist input method, helpful output device or custom dock.
Until recently your options for creating your own cell phone accessories were limited or non-existent.
With the announcement of the Android Open Accessory Protocol, Google provided an officially supported way to create Arduino-based accessories for Android phones and tablets.
This session will provide the information you’ll need to start to create Android accessories—the content will be useful whether you have previous Android or Arduino experience or neither.
When you attend you will:
You will leave the session inspired by what’s possible and with the knowledge needed to start to develop Android accessories with Arduino.
Philip Lindsay (also known as follower from rancidbacon.com ) creates tools to encapsulate the knowledge he gains from exploring and understanding technology in order to help others do their jobs more effectively. He translates technology.
In addition to teaching introductory Arduino workshops Philip has contributed USB and networking code to the Arduino eco-system.
When not exploring technology for the fun of it, Philip creates documentation, code libraries and example projects for SparkFun Electronics and other clients.
Tim O’Reilly once called Philip a “troublemaker” for his early Google Maps reverse engineering efforts.
Philip has a particular interest in the areas where design, art, craft and technology intersect.
