We rarely see folks tinkering around with Windows Phone (well perhaps like they did with the N900) but here’s lance connecting his Nokia Lumia 920 on WP8 to an Arduino over bluetooth. The LED light turns green when connected, red when disconnected to the 920.

Lance wants to know, “Have you made a successful Arduino to WP8 Project? Share your story!”

  1. Thank you for posting this, I am very excited to see what people will do. I also released the Arduino and WP8 Code at: https://github.com/lanceseidman/Arduino-Bluetooth-WinPhone8.

    The code is specific to work with Arduino (Tested with Uno R3) AND I have it doing a little bit more now… Like moving a Robot Wheel via Gearbox Motor as well as a larger LED.

    What does it mean? It means, we can now control our Arduino projects a little better (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JOMnmA0EwJo). More important? Imagine everyone has a little box that comes in different models based on sensors they want and an App Dev can extend his/her App to use the Box.

    My biggest example is having a tiny LCD scroll that at 2PM while you’re at Work it might Rain, take an Umbrella and maybe have little Julie (pretend child?) picked up by someone else. Why? Could have it [your WP8 App] log Traffic and perhaps usually a nightmare on the path you normally take to pick her up when it rains.

    This of course all COULD happen before you grab your Lumia in the morning. Maybe a bit much but maybe not, especially since you can use a lot of your phones Hardware…

    Thank you guys!
