One of the most versatile peripherals for the ODROID is the Arduino, which can be programmed as a standalone controller for many projects, from robots to home automation. A simple project to get started with the Arduino is to create an Ambilight system, which is a stunning background light display that synchronizes itself with live video. The engineers at Hardkernel demonstrated it at ARM TechCon 2016, and wrote a guide for you to easily create the same stunning light show in your own home.
To further enhance your viewing experience, we present a tutorial on setting up a MythTV front end as well as an article on enabling accelerated video playback in an ODROID-C2 web browser. For more experienced DIY enthusiasts, Miltiadis presents his lights controller with SMS notifier project that can be adapted and expanded to any IoT application, and Jörg shows us how to set up an alarm system with window sensors. Andy expands upon our previous Docker series with up-to-date information, Tobias introduces us to the Serious gaming engine, Nanik describes the Android WiFi stack, and Bruno has fun with Ancestor, a visual stunning Android game with amazing gameplay.
