Announcing GenghisIO

For the last twelve months I've been working on a "secret" project that's got me very, very excited! Even better, it's finally at a point where I can show you all something substantial.

The aim of the project, GenghisIO, is the development of a web-delivered platform for no-installation interactive robotics programming, using Android and iOS devices to bridge the gap between your software and your robot.

The targeted platforms are currently Sphero, LEGO NXT and IOIO, with "more to come" of course.

The video below shows the current test app UI, with a simple program driving the Sphero 2.0 around in a square pattern. The scrolling text shows real time serial communications with the Sphero.

GenghisIO is extremely alpha, but if you're interested in finding out more, I recommend following GenghisIO on Twitter where I'll be posting previews, updates, beta invites etc etc.

Happy robots!
