The Cellbots Remote Control mode includes a directional pad (D-Pad), a joystick, use of the phone’s accelerometer, and voice controls. Once the phone is connected you’ll have the option of chatting with the robot using Google Talk where you can simply type text messages such as ‘move forward’, ‘stop’, or ‘picture’, and have it obey your command.
Brain Mode also supports a web interface that you can access over the local wifi network to drive the robot with a mouse, touch screen, or keyboard commands. The phone on the robot will also use the camera to stream video to the browser so you can see through its eye from anywhere else on the local network.
The Cellbots app will also utilize the phone’s other capabilities such as text-to-speech to talk, take still pictures, get the compass heading, or show a personality on the screen. It is all open source if you want to modify it to support additional robots and functionality.

The Gears demo is an open source project intended to help developers learn how to create OpenGL ES programs on Android. The Gears demo was originally written by Brian Paul as part of the Mesa3D project. My implementation includes variations for Java/OpenGL ES 1.x, Java/C/OpenGL ES 1.x and Java/C/OpenGL ES 2.0. I have also added several features not found in the original implementation including touch screen support, VBOs and an on-screen FPS counter.
The FPS (frames-per-second) counter is often used as a benchmark metric for graphics programs. On Android the frame rate is limited by v-sync (typically 60 FPS) which is the fastest rate that a display can refresh the screen. Since Gears is capable of rendering much faster than v-sync on most devices it provides limited benchmarking value.

Simon Says is a memory game. Start the game by pressing one of the four buttons. When a button lights up, press the button, repeating the sequence. The sequence will get longer and longer. The game is won after 13 rounds.
The Simon Says Soldering kit and Bluetooth module is available from Sparkfun. Only the through hole version is supported at this time. See my github site for more details.
