Samsung SDK for the possibly round next-gen Gear ready for devs

The latest Android Wear platform is almost ready to roll out on some of the newest smartwatch models in the market today and Samsung would like to join in the fun by sending out invites to some developers to try out the Software Development Kit (SDK) of the next generation Galaxy Gear--which could be round this time based on the images on the invitation.

Qualcomm’s Vuforia SDK beta lets you developer for VR gear

Virtual Reality headsets and eyewear are getting more and more accessible, but it seems that the hardware is outpacing the development of apps and content that would actually make these devices more than just heavy accessories.

And that bridge is almost here with the beta release of the Vuforia SDK for Digital Eyewear.

Samsung released Tizen SDK for wearables

Samsung has released the SDK for their Tizen-based wearables. Their newest crop of wearables all use Tizen (kind of), Samsung’s proprietary OS, which may just be limited to their wearables ambitions. It’s an interesting move for Samsung, as they didn’t release an SDK for previous wearables, but a smart decision when considering current and potential competition.
