With Some Advanced Engineering You Can Run Android On An iPhone

Developers at Tendigi are frequent at squeezing a certain operating system someplace it doesn’t belong and recently just came up with an iPhone case that lets you run Android on an iOS smartphone.

The opportunity provided by Android Open Source Project was the reason Nick Lee was able to duplicate the mobile OS and frame his own hardware. But before he reached this advanced stage he first did a trail run of the concept by using a Nexus 5 and running Android over an iPhone through a cable.

To make this work he required tools that could connect with iOS in addition to services which allowed USB cables to sync with an iPhone. He also came up with a software which allowed conveyance of what was happening on the android screen to the iPhone and allow for sending the touch input.

The next big hurdle was to fit all this into an iPhone “case”. To achieve this he developed his own minuscule Android development board and linked it to the iPhone which had its own power supply. He then 3D printed a prototype hutch to house all of it and attached it to the iPhone.

It isn’t the best looking case and you are actually just streaming android over your iPhone which seems pretty weird but it’s the idea and the accompanying hard work that counts.
