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.

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:
