As said before, I’ve been putting together a little framework to talk to the MetaWatch.

I’m putting together a Cocoa framework that’s going to work on both, iOS (jailbroken, using btstack) and Mac OSX (using IOBluetooth or TTY directly)

Here’s a video showing an iOS demo App.

code coming soon. see MWKit for more info, source-code and repository.

What’s a MetaWatch ?

Well, it’s a watch obviously, kind of a smart watch but not actually that smart, basically it’s a remote display for other devices to write to, connections are made via Bluetooth using SPP (a serial port protocol).

What it is.

the avrBridge started off as a learning project to get a better understanding of how to implement usb communication, i took a microcontroller running obdev’s software-only usb implementation, and played with it for quite a while.
Since i didn’t really have any practical usb application back then, i figured it would be nice to be able to run the microcontroller’s code on the host side instead on the device itself, so i could use the usb device to quickly add “realworld” interaction, like sensors, buttons, leds or various other i/os to any kind of software or application.
