a solution for iPhone to Arduino

Was glad to see this new product on Makershed, so thought I'd share it with those interested:

Seems to allow connecting iPhone/iPad to Arduino, with Serial/TTL, all without jailbreaking :wink: There have been a bunch of threads on here by people looking for something like this, so maybe this will be a solution?

I had messed around pretty successfully with an earlier version of this after reading Alasdair Allan's book called "iOS Sensor Apps with Arduino" (although at that time this cable was only available with RS-232, so I had to use a MAX232 chip for that older version), and was able to input some sensor readings onto my iPad and also, in reverse, used the iPad to control a simple blinking LED... Easy to that extent but need to learn more app-programming
