Abusing Mobile Phones to Make the Internet of Things - Jan Jongboom - FOSSASIA Summit 2015

Published on: Tuesday, 17 March 2015

Speaker: Jan Jongboom, Telenor Digital

Everyone loves the Raspberry Pi or Arduino, they are amazing little
developer boards that drive almost all of the Internet of Things devices. Unfortunately they have one small problem... They're very, very expensive. Why do I need to shell out 30$ for a simple dev board, and 69$ for a GSM shield, when I can get a full smartphone for just 25$?! In this talk Jan Jongboom will literally break apart phones, introduce you to his alternative smartphone OS, hack volume buttons to control LEDs, solder some batteries and even juggle some devices.
