Sony Opens SmartWatch Project for Developers

Sony has opened up its smart watch for developers. The whole technological operation was an attempt to boost creativity among the developer community. Now the developers may innovate as they want regarding the code stuck in the hardware of the watch. Company declared that it wanted lots of improvisation and encourage to create alternative firmwares. In fact, this has led others to think of this as a Course in SmartWatch Hacking, which it might as well be. The smart watches behave like smart phones. Sony has given developers a seprate section called Open SmartWatch Project that gives insides and all deatils about its Android smart watch.

As for the Japanese firm, Sony, it has been pursued by both Apple and Samsung since eons for the smart watch technology. More than a million smart watches will be up for sale this year raking in a profit of $370 million. Two years from now the same selling rate may have increased up to twenty times its current status. With over 200 apps under its belt, Sony introduced the smart watch a year ago. The smart watch has such features that it connects to Google’s Android as well as with the Bluetooth facility.

Facebook and Twitter are regular amenities on this wonder among watches. Behind Sony’s program of opening up the inner secrets of its smart watch lies the fact that it wants to attract some aid from developers of every hue to create new components for the humdinger product. There were of course some snags having to do with the software of the Sony smart watch. And while this free-for-all program has given an opportunity to hackers to have a field day, it also invites a lot of competition thereby generating better and better models in the process.

Sony even commissioned a Hackathon in Malmo, Sweden where every tech freak and geek will be allowed to show what he or she has got. The alternatives Sony is in search of will take a while to appear. Whatever some experts may think it has done the right thing. A huge talent pool is the perfect source of leading edge technological innovation that bedazzles with its glorious array of features. Sony has even added a partner in its quest for the holy grail of smart watches. We speak of none other than Arduino, the manufacturer of microcontroller parts. This is clever thinking on the Tokyo-based multinational’s part and may just as well see its plans through to the next stage.
