This makes me want an Android phone and a Bluetooth Arduino. Amarino is a toolkit for the Android operating system that allows you to interface to an Arduino from your phone. The new version opens up a plug-in architecture and can now control multiple Arduinos (Arduini?) in parallel.

‘android meets arduino’ is a toolkit, basically consisting of an Android application and an Arduino library which will help you to interface with your phone in a new dimension. You can build your own interfaces almost without any programming experience.
