Now with added Beagle Bone

After the last couple of days my workshop in London on the 8th of October, at the Hoxton Hotel, now has added BeagleBone and Raspberry Pi.

Blinking the BeagleBone's heartbeat LED using the iPhone

We're going top go hands on in a small class setting, deep diving into the iOS internal sensors and how to connect your iPhone or iPad to external hardware. Everyone will get their hands dirty, and everyone will come away knowing more about both the iPhone hardware and how to work with external accessories. So come along and get your hands dirty playing with iPhone, Arduino and now the BeagleBone and Raspberry Pi and get 10% off the Early Bird ticket price today only with code BEAGLE10.

  1. Cool exploit, I really wish I could do something similar with an arduino and the USB Host shield.

  2. I don't think it'll be possible, there just isn't enough space at the Arduino end to implement the USB multiplexer code. It might be possible to build this for the Netduino and possible for the upcoming Arduino Duo, both of which are ARM-based boards.

  3. I have been thinking about this a bit and looks like this setup is great for controlling something from you an iOS device, but what about controlling in the other direction, Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone to iOS device?

    1. It's basically a bi-directional serial link over sockets. So long as the iOS code is written to look for commands coming from the other end of the USB cable, this isn't a problem. WIll work just fine...

  4. I got a Raspberry Pi awhile back, but since I have some many projects on going at the moment, it’s been put on the back burner. Anyway I was reading an article today and it reminded me about your exploit and a follow up question for you.

    So the only why this would work is if I write an iOS application? What about access to the Apple’s Accessory Protocol? I know typically it’s enabled thru resistors by way of the dock connector, but also not most car radio connect thru USB.
