Android Things is a relatively new platform launched in Dec 2016 and there is still a dearth of drivers and documentations for the platform. Below is a list of five projects using Android Things.

1. How Far way is that

This is a great example of using various sensors to create something interesting. Although the sensors used is not available publicly there is a lot to learn from this example that shows how far away something is using a laser.

2. Where is my Bus

This is a great example of consuming an API to create something interesting. Using an unofficial API for a bus service in NewZeland Dave was able to create a nice little station that shows the bus arrival times for few bus stops. Check it out at the link below.
