A fun little video just came our way to help spread along the holiday cheer. If you’ve ever wondered just how flexible Android’s Open Accessory platform (ADK) can be, this video shows if you combine an Android tablet with Google’s ADK, you can make your very own fully controlled Christmas light show.
The project was born during a coding session for Auckland GTUG — a user group for developers who like to meet up and share not only their knowledge but a love for all things Google and Android tech related.
In the video, an Acer Iconia Tab (A500) is used in conjunction with Google I/O’s ADK board, to control 9 different channels of Christmas lights, synching them on and off with the music being played. Nothing groundbreaking but still very cool and of course, very festive.
