Are you a Java or Android developer looking to add advanced hardware I/O capabilities to your Android or PC application? The SparkFun Inventor’s Kit for IOIO (SIKIO) provides 7 projects, that allow you to control various pieces of external hardware with a IOIO-OTG (pronounced “yo-yo-O-T-G”), via an Android application! To put it simply, with this kit you will be learn to write Android applications that can read or control motors, sensors, LEDs, and more.

The full-color SIKIO Guidebook (included) contains step by step instructions of how to connect each circuit with the included parts. Full example code is provided and explained and even includes troubleshooting tips if something goes wrong.

The kit does not require any soldering and is recommended for people at an intermediate programming level; meaning we hope you have a foundation in writing code and know some basics about electronic hardware. Motivated beginners are welcome, but warned that it may be quite difficult especially if you are unfamiliar with the basics of programming.

Note: Please do not power your IOIO-OTG with 10V over longer wires. This may cause your board to fail.

Note: This product is a collaboration with Ytai Ben-Tsvi. A portion of each sales goes back to him for product support and continued development.
