 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

http://www.synthtopia.com/content/2011/05/13/will-google-arduino-open-hardware-kill-the-ios-music-juggernaut/

Found out (from the above link) about android basing its new peripheral API on the arduino and was wondering if there was any more information about it.

I looked at the Android Open Accessory page about it but pretty much all I was able to gather was that I should buy a specific shield for my arduino from a Japanese website for 31,000 yen.

Is there something I'm missing here or am I on the right track?

This is a good starting point.

You just need a USB master shield.

Amarino developed a bluetooth api to handle events to and from arduino and android. It's basically a glorified serial parser but it works well and is easy to use. They also have a somewhat active support group if I'm not mistaken.

You can use ready solution instead of Amarino. ArduinoCommander app (https://market.android.com/details?id=name.antonsmirnov.android.arduinocommander), bluetooth shield and StandardFirmata sketch.
