Very interesting announcement this morning from Google I/O.

They did a demo connecting an Android handset to an Arduino and use it as the interface to connect pretty much ANYTHING to your handset.

My next phone may be an Android instead of an iPhone.

Another link. http://gizmodo.com/5800436/androids-new-hacker-dream-adk-makes-anything-an-accessory

Watch the video to see an Android tablet control a marble labyrinth via a couple servos.

They then built a giant labyrinth that requires two 200V 50A motors.

I'm surprised that there is not much about this here!

My next phone may be an Android instead of an iPhone.

I can't see why anybody would want an iClone, they're all the same, and so restricted! Don't see Apple creating a programming environment for their phones that my two year niece could use!
