Seeeduino ADK @ Hackerspacekl
Christmas is early for some of us in Hackerspace KL, because Kakeman and Yours Truly have a new toy. The Seeeduino ADK Board.
The Seeeduino ADK is a Android Open Accessory Development Kit. It is a Arduino Mega compatible development board for use with the Open Accessory API. Open Accessory API enable Android Phone running Android 3.1 and 2.3.4 to interface to a USB device. With a Android App we can control the device, and vice versa. In this case, the device would be the ADK.
What different about this board is, it also support Microbridge, which is a implementation of the Android Debug Bridge on a microcontroller, meaning, for those that have older version of Android OS, such as Yours Truly will be able to interface the Android phone with the development board.
To cut thing short, we have run through the example using microbridge, created a demo video, thanks to Kakeman.
