First off, the reason this is in bar sport is because I am not currently trying to develop it, nor will I be any time soon...
Now then... I am going to be making a huge project... Head Board, Bed Frame, Desk, and TV Center. I am going to have an iPod / iPhone dock integrated in the headboard, so It can charge and play music at the same time... There is going to be lighted frosted plexiglass behind it... It would be cool to make it change colors, though... My question is:
How hard would it be to read the battery level of the iPod / iPhone? I cold then convert it to one of the following:
A shade of green, yellow, or red, representing the battery level.
Bars of light behing the plexy representing roughly 10%... As in 10, 20, 30, ect. I would have it round the percent; <5 would round down and >5 would round up...
Right, but the thing was that DIY was no good with newer phones because they changed the voltage needed from 2.5v to 2.8v and the "old" DIY instructions were no longer working. So yes it's been done but it was necessary to do it again. (At least this is my understanding.)
