For some unknown reason, when connected lsusb gives "High Tech Computer Corp."

First Take at Android with Processing + Ketai

I have been using Android and iOS equally for more than 4 years now. It took me this long to actually start android development. I spent last 2 days with Processing and their Android Mode, along with Ketai Library.

I had a glance through the "Rapid Android Development" book, and started using Ketai library. I wanted to add a button and display a hello world which I was not able to do so. Realized Ketai though a wonderful library, was still missing some essential pieces which was required for actually developing apps through Processing for Android.

I sat down and started hacking on the Ketai code + Android SDK and was finally able to write couple of classes, to add Button + Custom View / Layout support. I know this is not a lot, but certainly enough to keep me motivated on continuing my adventure with Processing + Android.
