I’m still doing some final tests, so it’s not on Google Play yet, but it should be up there by tomorrow.
With this update, you can now use the MobBob app with any Arduino controller and most Bluetooth boards!
This makes things more flexible for people interested in building MobBob! You don’t have to get a Bluno board. You can build MobBob if you have a Bluetooth module and an Arduino-compatible microcontroller lying around.
If you make use of this updated app, please leave a note! I’d love to see your project.
If you are new to robotics… using a Bluno is still probably easier and cheaper!
Just a reminder that with regular Bluetooth connections, the Bluetooth board needs to be paired with your phone! (With the Bluno’s Bluetooth LE, no pairing is required.)
While the app doesn’t look like it has changed a lot… a lot has changed underneath. This reorganization took up the whole weekend, but I think it was worth it! It makes MobBob more future-proof.
This helps to pave the way for some MobBob spin-off projects I’ve been discussing with some robot-making friends! More on these soon! 😀
Also, since this app can connect to most Bluetooth boards… it also opens up the possibility of using the app with MobBobs that are driven using other (non-Arduino) microcontrollers! (You would need to write your own microcontroller code that can accept and execute MobBob’s command set though.)
