We've got 2 touch orbiters source code checked into SVN now. I'm exploring more advanced features like implementing bluetooth support, etc. (Preliminary code for this is in svn already) Anyways, had a brainstorm and wanted to get some discussion going. With Android devices we are able to retrieve the last known location, and have several options for location detection, bluetooth, gps, cell triangulation, and wifi come to mind. With a little effort we can probably do some cool things with location based scenarios (like the mobile orbiter scenarios when away from home). I'm thinking it would be cool to levarage something like Google Maps so we can make the home aware of where we are/have been. I wanted to plant the seed and get some feedback, do you guys think something like this could be useful, what ideas do you have for something like this, etc?
Keep in mind that the original mobile orbiter code was written when phones were not nearly as capable as they are today, we need to do some thorough research and assess what we currently have before making any final development decisions. I feel that the touch orbiter is a definite step in the right direction, but let's not forget there are lots of other features of the mobile orbiters too, and we have the source code so we can be innovative in this area.
