Android and GPIO...

Fri Jun 17, 2016 2:36 pm

Just discovered Google is about to support Android on the Pi3.

Now the possibilities have expanded... provided the touch screen is fully supported along with GPIO...
As humans we have been the same for a very very long time, technology changes how we do... not who we are as people.

This is big news, and yes it does open the door to many more options. We are in good times as makers.
