This video from oscon featuring Alasdair Allen, author of iOS Sensor Apps with Arduino, gives an inspiring overview and demonstration of what is possible using the Maker Shed’s RedPark Breakout Pack for Arduino and iOS. While the video doesn’t rank high on the excitement scale, it gives great insights and project ideas to anyone interested in combining iOS devices and microcontrollers.

Redpark Breakout Pack for Arduino and iOS Features:

  • Enables development of iOS apps for private use in homes, schools and offices
