Have a look at this cool control system! An iPhone is rigged up so that it can control a TV Lift which raises and lowers a TV out of the ceiling. This is a great example of a functional and fun project that your versatile iPhone is perfect for.

“The software for this project is deceptively simple. The iPhone software basically connects to the server using a socket, and if the “up” button is pressed it sends a ‘u’ over the socket, and a ‘d’ if the down button is pressed. That’s it! Server software is almost identical, however it listens to the return of the serial port and expects my controller board to return a ‘U’ or a ‘D’ from the ‘u’ and ‘d’ command. If these are received, the board is reset and the command is tried again.”
