Project Soli applies radar tech to interfacing with wearables

Here’s the problem – devices are getting smaller and smaller that it’s getting more difficult by the generation to design ways of interacting or interfacing with them that are natural and logical, not to mention simple enough to create.

Project Soli integrates radar technology with the motive of easier interaction with small wearable devices.

Spotify now available as an app for Android Wear

One of the most popular (yet controversial) music streaming services will be arriving soon to your wearables. Welcome Spotify to the (apparently 4,000-app strong) world of Android Wear.

Wear Mini Launcher lets you manage apps in your smartwatch

Aside from getting to the apps, you also get to customize your settings and options so that it's easier for you to manage your smartwatch, even without opening your smartphone.
