This series will teach you how to program the Tinker Pi Arduino Robot using App Inventor. It starts out with the very basics of MIT App Inventor -- how to install it, and test it using an Android Device as well as an Amazon Kindle. You'll learn how to hook up an HC-06 bluetooth module to the Arduino and connect to it using App Inventor. You'll hook up two DC motors and use the accelerometer on your Android device to spin the wheels. Finally, you'll bring it all together by assembling the Tinker Pi Robot, and driving it using your phone.
