How to Build an Android App Part 3: Arduino Development – XDA TV
Last year at Google I/O, Google released the Android Accessory Development Kit. And yesterday we gave a brief primer on the options available for those looking to get started with the ADK. Arduino is the foundation which the Google ADK is based upon. In this video, XDA Elite Recognized Developer AdamOutler demonstrates setup and use of an Arduino.
To start things off, AdamOutler shows us how to use an Arduino board to make a LED array. He then programs the board to flash the LEDs making an awesome flashlight-like device. Finally, AdamOutler shows us another option for an Arduino. Developers looking to get into making accessories that interface with mobile devices or just tinker with some really cool stuff should check out the video below.
This video is part 3 of a 4 part How to Build an Android App series. Be sure to check out the following videos before the final episode of the series:
- How to Build an Android App Part 1: Setting up Eclipse and Android SDK
- How to Build an Android App Part 2: Writing a Root App

This is despite the bootloader being locked (which means there's no need for you to void your warranty!), and marks the first step towards custom ROM and kernel development for...
Samsung's latest and greatest, the Galaxy S6 Edge, is drastically different from any Samsung flagship that has come before it.
