Martin sent in his super cool open source Android Controller library and Android app for wireless interaction with his projects. via bitbucket
The Arduino Controller lets you control your Arduino project from your Android phone or tablet. You can code interactive UIs using buttons, text fieds, sliders and even live diagrams – right in your Arduino sketch! Or you can use your Android’s gyroscope to control your Arduino bot. And much more.
The project consists of two parts: The Android app The Arduino library
Install the Android app (or compile it from the source)
Add the Arduino library from /arduino-code/AndroidController.zip to your Arduino library folder
Connect a bluetooth serial module (like the JY-MCU), to TX on pin 10 and RX on pin 11
Run the provided example program bundled with the library (AndroidControllerDemo)
Start the android app and connect to your (previously bonded) bt device
