"Finally my iPad can interface with the real world! techBASIC is the easiest and most intuitive programming tool I have ever used. This book really makes me want to explore my creative ideas for controlling things with my iPad."-- Jarle BoeWireless Evangelist, Texas Instruments


Why simply play music or go online when you can use your iPhone or iPad for some really fun projects, such as building a metal detector, hacking a radio control truck, or tracking a model rocket in flight? Learn how to build these and other cool things by using iOS device sensors and inexpensive hardware such as Arduino and a Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) Shield.

This hands-on book shows you how to write simple applications with techBASIC, an Apple-approved development environment that runs on iOS devices. By using code and example programs built into techBASIC, you’ll learn how to write apps directly on your Apple device and have it interact with other hardware.

  • Build a metal detector with the iOS magnetometer
  • Use the HiJack hardware platform to create a plant moisture sensor
  • Put your iPhone on a small rocket to collect acceleration and rotation data
  • Hack a radio control truck with Arduino and Bluetooth LE
  • Create an arcade game with an iPad controller and two iPhone paddles
  • Control a candy machine with an iOS device, a micro servo, and a WiFi connection

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not on my iphone 8. Dezember 2013
Von Himri - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
The book explains how to use your iphone to make all the cool projects of metal detector, tricorder (not much into star trek to appreciate its need), bluetooth low energy shield. This process helped me understand my iphone and its innards better. The author had a good consideration about his audience being from a software or hardware background but not both and maintained that bridge connection to make the readers feel at ease. That said the book still requires a good amount of coding skill. since the book is about very specific projects, it caters to a very narrow niche of makers. The book would have done with a general expanse of applications and less detail.

4.0 von 5 Sternen So you want to build a tricorder 6. Dezember 2013
Von Brian Connors - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
I've always thought Apple missed a major opportunity by not releasing an SDK for the iPod nano 5G when it first came out. It's kind of a moot point now because the BeagleBone Black and Raspberry Pi are a lot cheaper and aren't tied to an ecosystem that's designed to enforce stability at all costs, but iOS still has a fair amount to recommend it. So, if you need a book for that... this isn't quite it. (But it'll probably serve your purpose anyway.)

See, this book is mistitled. It's actually a book about the TechBASIC environment and how to use it to interact with the outside using something other than the Lightning port. The language itself is a commercial product available through the App Store, but it happens to interface with a number of peripherals, including the HiJack (a serial interface for the headphone port) and the TI SensorTag via Bluetooth Low Energy, as well as the sensors built into iOS devices. There's also some vehicle automation, including packing an iPhone into a model rocket for data gathering and controlling a model truck via Arduino and Bluetooth LE, and an iPad Pong game using two iPhones as controllers. (The tricorder bit is basically the up-and-running chapter at the beginning, covering datalogging basics.) I want to criticize the use of third-party commercial software in a book meant for makers, but to be honest, the realities of the iOS environment mean this is probably about the best way to go about using iOS for maker projects.

So... if you know what's actually in the book, it will do its job fairly well. It's just not quite what its title claims it is. Enjoy.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Expand the iphone 19. Dezember 2013
Von Theseus - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
This short book opens your eyes to the fun (and, let's face it) goofy ways you can expand your iphone using techBASIC.

Westerfield's book serves two functions. It shows you how to do stuff such as "put your iPhone on a small rocket to collect acceleration and rotation data." And this, after all, might be something you'd want to do. More importantly, it opens your eyes to the ways in which techBASIC and an iphone can be cadged to create some interesting results.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good book with a few caveats 29. November 2013
Von Robert M - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
The book has lots of great examples of programming your iPad/Iphone using a language called techBASIC.
techBASIC is used to avoid the need for a full-blown development system using Objective C and does not require payment to Apple to join the developer program. The first few projects are based only on the iOS devices internal sensors such as accelerometer and magnetometer.

Some caveats:
1. The most projects require external hardware that must be purchased separately. For example, some use a $25 sensor from Texas Instruments. Others use a model rocket.
2. The book only gives you access to pre-made techBASIC programs. To write your own or modify the ones in the book requires the purchase of the full-blown app for fifteen bucks on the app store.

My other issue is that the techBASIC language itself is a little cumbersome or maybe ugly is a better word. I wished it was cleaner and more Python like and I think that would make it more approachable for the newcomer to programming.

Overall it is a good book with very good projects.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Good Starting Point for Geeks Like me Who Want to Create Useful, Award-Winning Apps for Apple Products 6. November 2013
Von Charles Wm Anderson @wordpress - Veröffentlicht auf

UPDATED REVIEW: with the changes in iOS I believe this book is now only generally useful

Are you a hobbyist of the sort from which the original computer developers (Wozniak, et Al) we're cut from? If so, or if you want to experiment with the unique abilities of you iPhone or iPad to use your device to seek treasures, control remotely your cars, or whatever, you will want. The book, Building iPhone and iPad Electronic Projects - a well-written, easy to grasp text for computer/electronic hobbyists.

What I greatly appreciate is that the author did not try to be cute or funny. Mike Westerfield stayed straight and true to the serious nature of instruction, without getting preachy or mundane.

I highly recommend Building iPhone and iPad Elctronic Projects: Real-World Arduino, Sensor, and Bluetooh Low Energy Apps in techBasic.
