The IOIO Android breakout board competition

ioio-android-3.jpgTime for another competition! The theme we are taking for this one is Google’s Android platform. So, taking a cue from a previous Gadget Master post – Android phones hack their way with IOIO breakout  – let’s have an Android related prize!

The IOIO board (pronounced “YoYo”), from SparkFun, is an easy way to get I/O from an Android smartphone’s USB connection (OS versions 1.5 and greater). The board uses a Java API to hook into your phone’s app, and this means you can extend the functionality of the phone out to external sensors and controls!

Here’s the January/February compo!
