Pebble: E-Paper Watch for iPhone and Android
Today I backed my first kickstarter project. It wasn’t an altruistic investment, they are building an awesome device.
One of the things I’ve always wanted was the ability to manage my smartphone from my wrist. For the most part, previous computer wrist watches have been ugly monstrosities, with very little to offer (calculator anyone?). Â The real computing power is in your smartphone and what you need on your wrist is a second screen to control your smartphone.
Take a look at the Pepple Kickstarter project. You’ll see the watch allows you the functions of a fancy sports watch with the ability to manage the apps on your smartphone. They’re also releasing a SDK (software development kit) that hopefully will generate new apps. Â First signs look good because the developers package already sold out.
You can get your own Pebble at theirÂ Kickstarter page.
Update: They added support for ifttt, I’m over the moon!
