WebJack is a wired, bidirectional data link between the Arduino Uno and your phone, established via headphone jack. It uses two distinct frequencies for a modem-like serial transmission of data. WebJacks runs in the browser and its goal is to provide a way to read sensors without the burden to install native applications. Look for recent updates on Public Lab here.
