Okay, so this is a kind of a cool mini project to send and receive serial data (UART) to a smart phone. In this video, I’m basically making a wireless Serial Monitor window for an Arduino. Note that this isn’t going to be as fast or as reliable as a hard connection, but if you’re sending data out every once and a while or every second, this works pretty good. Next, we’ll use this serial data to do something useful like control WS2812 LEDs, Stepper motors, or collect sensor data…

Here’s the project file you can import into the IDE: http://www.kevindarrah.com/download/bluetooth/Serial_8_15_16.atmo.zip

Thanks to all the Patrons for dropping a few bucks in the tip jar to help make these videos happen!
