Thank u,
     The same idea made me think of  a way to link open moko with real world
..'Can open moko make coffee'..
     The interface could be either through usb or RF ..
For the above mentioned ideas like connecting phone to external circuitries
like microcontroller , i think it is a good idea to use usb...
Anyway i am excited to see this idea implemented some way....
