Google’s Arduino ADK Working on Nexus One!

Looks like people left rather happy from Google IO. Lots of news regarding Android, Chrome, and everything that people could have possibly wanted to hear about the future of all that is Google. Not just that, but also many devs that went there left with their hands and pockets full as well. In the case of XDA member Nikropht, he walked out of the conference with a brand new and shiny AADK (Arduino Accessory Developers Kit). The dev decided to put some code together and as a result, he managed to get his Gingerbread-loaded Nexus One to recognize and interact with the board. On the pictures that were attached to the thread, one can see that all sensors seemed fully functional, as well as LEDs, and even USB support. The latter is a bit trickier because there are currently no apps or software made to support the platform. However, it is very early for this and we expect to see great developments coming out of it.

Please drop by the thread and leave some feedback for the dev.

I managed to snag an Android Accessory Development Kit from Google IO. 

After wrangling all the necessary code bits together I got the demo code running on the Arduino board and my Nexus One.

You can find more information in the original thread.

Microsoft is preparing a monumental release with Windows 10, and it could easily be one of the biggest developments in operating system history. The company’s track record in desktop OS releases saw a significant dip with Windows 8, but they did an impressive job in assembling a new strategy for this next big piece of software.
