Here’s an interesting and fun use of the MSP430 and your Android phone: robotic tank control. This project by Mike adds a Bluetooth transceiver module MSP430 and mounts this along with a motor drive booster pack and battery on a toy tank from Pololu.com. He says, “All in all, a fun project where I learned a lot as usual. Next step might be to add some sensors. Or maybe a really bright LED and then have a control on the phone to flash it at people.”
You can get more details and download the code from Mike and Cindy’s Project Blog.
