Sundar Pichai,Who is the is a senior vice president at Google,announced that the company will launch a new wearable SDK for Android at SXSW Interactive.
The SDK will allow coders to add a cast button to their app or site, be it on Android, iOS or in Chrome. The obvious use is for video apps, but there are plenty of other potential options here as well.
Pichai focused heavily on expanding developers’ ability to harvest data from sensors of any kind… so long as they’re mounted on your body. He even suggested a future where your jacket is loaded with sensors and powered by Android.
Obviously Google is trying to get Android into as many devices as possible. Moving into the wearable space only makes sense. It has made various efforts on TV front and at CES announced a partnership with a number of car manufacturers to get the little green bot inside your dashboard also.
The Tool will be available for Download In Two Weeks.
