Arduino + Android = Open Accessory fun! (Dec 2011 edition)

Arduino + Android = Open Accessory fun! (Dec 2011 edition)

Sunday, December 11, 2011 from 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM (ET) venue: ThingTank  376 Bathurst Street (Downstairs) Toronto, M5T 2S6 Canada
Android Open Accessory support opens up the ability of your Android device to accept input from common external USB hardware such as keyboards, mice, and game controllers. Even more exciting for the hardware hobbyist is the ability to use the Android Open Accessory APIs to control USB devices, including the popular Arduino microcontroller.

This 5-hour, hands-on workshop will focus on allowing Android/Java developers the opportunity get their hands dirty with the fundamentals of electronics and the Android Open Accessory APIs. The workshop will give you the chance to get acquainted with a variety of basic electronic components such as LEDs, motors, sensors, and the Arduino-based ADK. Workshop enrollment is capped at 6 attendees so you're guarenteed to get individual attention.
 Attendees will walk away with their very own hacked Dyzplastic Android figurine and all the parts (including the ADK micro-controller) to continue hacking away at home.
