The Android operating system is becoming more and more popular among embedded device manufacturers making it evermore practical to create devices that can interface with Android. Now you can create your own electronic devices with the popular IOIO (“yoyo”) board, and control them with your Android phone or tablet. With this concise guide, you’ll get started by building four example projects—after that, the possibilities for making your own fun and creative accessories with Android and IOIO are endless.
