Experimental Motion API for the Sony Smart Imaging Stand

Experimental Motion API for the Sony Smart Imaging Stand

The Sony Smart Imaging Stand┬ámay seem like a novelty item, but it has some genuine potential. It is essentially a motorized “tripod” for Sony Xperia devices running Android 4+ that can adjust its position to perform tasks such as making sure your face is in the shot and more. In fact, that is exactly what Sony’s first party SmileCatcher app accomplishes while recording video. Bluetooth pairing is also a breeze, as it’s initiated via NFC.

However, the built in functionality of the SmileCatcher application is not what makes the Smart Imaging Stand special. Rather, the stand is interesting because Sony has opened up its (experimental) Motion API in hopes that developers can write applications that make use of the stand’s unique functionality.

To get started developing with Motion API, download the Motion API Developer kit. More information can be found on the Sony Developers Site. Do you have any interesting applications in mind for Sony’s new Smart Imaging Stand? Let us know in the comments section below!
