This is a book for hobbyists, students, and professionals who need to connect an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to sensors in the real worldówithout needing to enroll in Apple's iOS developer program.
Want to combine iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch sensors with external electronic gadgets? This hands-on book helps you build several projects, using these built-in magnetic, light, and proximity sensors with inexpensive boards such as Arduino and a Bluetooth Low Energy Shield. And you'll tackle these projects by writing programs in techBASIC, an Apple-approved development environment that runs directly on these iOS devices.
That's right. You'll quickly learn how to build metal detector, moisture sensing meter, and a rocket-bound iPhone without using Objective-C and Cocoa to access Apple's sensors and without having to enroll in Apple's iOS developer program. With just a few lines of BASIC code, you can write your apps directly on your mobile device for rapid development and prototyping-and watch your project take shape!
This book is ideal for hobbyists, students, professional engineers, industrial designers, and inventors.
