For Christmas I got a IOIOMint. That’s a cool little bridge device which lets you connect external hardware to an Android device.
When I move the joystick on the nunchuck, the ball moves around on the screen. Getting everything set up was really simple. The only two problems I ran into were forgetting to plug in the battery (Doh!!) and setting the Android project up for API 17. The IOIOLib was written for a version before USB support moved into the android.hardware package. I simply switched the project back to API 10 and everything started working fine.
This looks like it’s going to be a really fun, easy to use toy. Let’s see; what should we build first?
