TEAM ARDUINO UP WITH ANDROID FOR SOME MISCHIEVOUS FUN!

Filled with practical, do-it-yourself gadgets, Arduino + Android Projects for the Evil Genius shows you how to create Arduino devices and control them with Android smartphones and tablets. Easy-to-find equipment and components are used for all the projects in the book.

This wickedly inventive guide covers the Android Open Application Development Kit (ADK) and USB interface and explains how to use them with the basic Arduino platform. Methods of communication between Android and Arduino that don't require the ADK--including sound, Bluetooth, and WiFi/Ethernet are also discussed. An Arduino ADK programming tutorial helps you get started right away.

Arduino + Android Projects for the Evil Genius:

  • Contains step-by-step instructions and helpful illustrations
  • Provides tips for customizing the projects
  • Covers the underlying principles behind the projects
  • Removes the frustration factor--all required parts are listed
  • Provides all source code on the book's website

Build these and other devious devices:

  • Bluetooth robot
  • Android Geiger counter
  • Android-controlled light show
  • TV remote
  • Temperature logger
  • Ultrasonic range finder
  • Home automation controller
  • Remote power and lighting control
  • Smart thermostat
  • RFID door lock

Save your money
Now I understand why the free preview only had a table of contents and a small sample of the index - the scan quality of the book text is *horrible*. Text is very blurry and darn near unreadable.

Suggestion
I typically do NOT buy books when I get the scanned pages/not so good on smaller screens message; however, I really want to get this. The 30 projects book doesn't get scanned pages
messaging if someone can be coaxed into delivering this book in same format. Thanks for your time and consideration. Rated as average although will change this upon reading something more than sample.
