21 Sensors from a repurposed Android
I have got a drawer full of android phones full of sensors...(how do they manage to get so much into a small package ).
Looking for ways to re-purpose I found SensoDuino an already old initiative from Techbitar to (re)use an Android phone for input/output.
With the help of a ceech board, a HC-05 bluetooth device and a few wires a multi (21) sensor MySensors node was born.
There are some things to take care of.. like Baud rate of the HC-05 and sharing the Rx/Tx pins with the HC-05, nothing really complicated.
I included the MySensors specifics into the demonstration sketch of SensoDuino and made it work with the sensors I have a purpose for. There are probably very interesting uses for: GPS, Orientation, Gravity, Rotation Vector, Gyroscope, Accelerometer, Linear Accelerometer and Magnetometer. I'm interested in your thoughts.
I will try to contact "techbitar" to see if there are any new plans, like using the phone display as a Color-Touchscreen sensor...
21 sensors in one node! You hold the record. Really smart to reuse old phones.
@hek I'm sorry for the users.

@AWI, that's OK, our iPhones are so reliable (or should I say "expensive") that we don't get to collect them like Andriods.
