DIY, or do-it-yourself, is all about creativity, learning, and innovation. Not only is it fun, gives the satisfaction of having made something on your own rather than purchasing it, and forces us to push our boundaries but also is an exciting way to explore the unexplored and learn new things, especially when it comes to exploring the new-age trinity: electronics, programming, and robotics.

For making projects based on electronics, programming, or robotics, or as a matter of fact, any DIY project, you need the right supplies. And with the new, mind-blowing technologies coming up every now and then, it becomes difficult to choose the right ones! Today we’re going to focus on one such amazing technology: a Smartphone application. There are hundreds of apps that you can find on Playstore and Appstore. Just type in electronics in the search bar and boom! A never-ending list to choose from! Such perpetual lists make it difficult for budding DIYers to settle for one thing; wasting half of the time in looking for that right stuff and thus deflating the initially present enthusiasm.

But fret not, young innovators! There finally is a solution for your project-making needs! Meet Dabble, the ingenious all-in-one project-making application that transforms your Smartphone into a virtual I/O device and lets you control and communicate with hardware via Bluetooth, access sensors like the accelerometer, GPS, camera, and proximity and other features of your Smartphone. This opens gates to a broader and more exciting area of projects that you can make by exploiting your Smartphone to the fullest!

Fun DIY Projects Based on Dabble

There are hundreds of thousands of DIY projects out there based on Smartphone applications out there for you to try out. But many of them may require either more than one app if you want to make your project more versatile or an additional piece of hardware deviating from the purpose of making a DIY project fun, easy, and cost-effective. Not with Dabble! All you need to do is have the basic stuff, such as a prototyping board, some electronic and mechanical components, and a Smartphone with Dabble installed in it and you’re all set to become the innovator you’re destined to be!

Here, we’re listing a few interesting projects that you can make with the help of Dabble:

  • Robotic Vacuum Cleaner
