Google's Open Accessory Development Kit Gets Handled

Yesterday, Google showed off its “Open Accessory Development Kit,” a set of tools and hardware for connecting Android to a variety of devices via an Arduino-based board. I wrote how it indicated a new direction for Android, but I’m no technical expert on the stuff — I couldn’t say anything specific about the devices and capability.

Make, however, knows what they’re talking about with this kind of thing, and has posted a nice little hands-on, with initial impressions and some tips.
