Bluetooth and andriod

Completed my first Android App that communicates to a new bar code scanner via blue-tooth.  This little board is made by Cygentron Inc ( The module is powered by a small li-ploy battery so not to drain the battery of the phone.

The module has upgradeable firmware via a small boot loader which is triggered by a simple protocol via blue-tooth.   Also created a windows App using WPF to allow users to configure, test and learn the protocol.

Panda Board

Now that most of my "side" tasks are done, now moving to the FEZ panda board.   Porting eLua and testing SPI, I2C and USB
