Real-time tinkering on Intel Galileo using a mobile device

If you are a beginner and want to start prototyping easily with  Intel Galileo, it could be fun to use ConnectAnyThing. It  makes it easy for novices to start tinkering in hardware before jumping into example code and the IDE but it’s also useful for experienced builders that want to try something out really quickly.

To get started, you will need:

  • Galileo (with updated firmware)
  • Wi-Fi card and antenna.  (Tested with Centrino n-135, n-6205, n-6235)
  • Micro SD card, 2gb up to 32gb capacity, with ConnectAnyThing loaded (instructions on github)

Download the latest release of ConnectAnyThing, follow the instructions and enjoy tinkering: on a webpage you’ll be able to  read inputs and control outputs in real-time from your mobile device!

This Arduino hackaphone was never going to be pretty, but it does the job

Okay, we'll admit that it looks a bit like a baby monitor. But in contrast to those over-engineered pieces of parenting paraphernalia, this DIY cellphone can actually make calls and send texts over GPRS. More importantly, Hackaday claims it was put together by a lone hacker ("Victorzie") from an assortment of off-the-shelf and modded parts, including a TFT touchscreen, lithium ion battery, charging circuit, GPRS module and shield. These components were hooked up to an Arduino Uno microcontroller running a barebones UI and then jammed into a 3D printed case, which makes the device look far more pocketable than some previous hackaphone efforts. The end result inspires big respect for the creator, but also, more grudgingly, for the pro engineers at places like Nokia, who can pull all this stuff together and even get it FCC-approved for just a few dollars.

Drummerbot Makes Beats with Arduino

Using a web-based phone controller, Steffest controls an array of fourteen percussive instruments that are packed into a setup so tightly I can’t help but use the word “cute.” Despite the amount of instruments, the bot uses only eight servos, six of which play different instruments depending on which direction they swing towards.

The bot provides a convincing Bo-Diddley beat as the maker plays guitar and sings.

The phone’s interface is set up like a standard digital sequencer, and the string is sent to Arduino through a WiFi module and HTTP server.
