IOIO: Control Electronic Gadgets with Your Android Smartphone
“IOIO (pronounced: yo-yo) is a product which lets you connect electronic circuits to an Android device and control them from an Android application.
It is comprised of a small (2.7×1.2″ = 7x3cm) PCB that connects to an Android device with a USB cable and a software library (Java .jar file) that you use in your Android app which handles all communications with the board.
No firmware programming is required – only Android application authoring with a very simple API (see examples below) for controlling the pins on the board.
No modification of the Android device is required – you avoid the complication of modification and the voiding of warranty.
The first few boards will ship within a couple of weeks. Around that time, the entire software and hardware are going to be 100% open-source with a permissive license.”
