Ytai Ben-Tsvi’s IOIO board is quite the hit with the Android-hacking DIY crowd. But, that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for improvement on the $50 dev board. A second-gen version is in the works that adds the ability to connect to a computer as a USB device (not just as a host) or via Bluetooth, without the need for a intermediary controller like an Arduino. Perhaps most exciting for those interested in tinkering with DIY Android phone accessories, is the plan to cut the price of the new IOIO. How much less the next version will cost isn’t clear yet, but even just $5 could make a major difference. For more details check out Ytai’s blog post at the source link.
