Windows 95 on your Android Wear, if you have nothing better to do

YouTube user Corbin Davenport is gaining a bit of Internet notoriety, although we’re not exactly sure if this is the good or the bad kind. You see, he has tried to run some programs on Android Wear devices that, err… are not really normal nor useful to say the least. He has run Minecraft on his Samsung Gear Live, and has also ported classic PC shooter Doom on the same device. Now he has, for whatever reason unknown, managed to run a full Windows 95 operating system on his Android Wear device.

Wear Apps Tracker app updated with new UI features

The problem with managing apps on your Android Wear wearable device is that – with such a small screen – app management was never in the mind of the UI designers.

Wear Apps Tracker changes all of that.

That said, Samsung is set to splurge some of their well-earned smartphone profit on the Samsung Gear VR and Oculus is set to launch a game created especially for the Gear VR.
