Monitor What Your Phone’s Camera Sees with Android Wear

Having a smart device strapped to your wrist certainly has its merits. A growing number of Android Wear apps we’re seeing now are allowing us to stay on top of many things without having to lug out our devices out with features such as Android Wear notifications, as well as perform things normally done with our phone, tablet, or even PC with apps like EchoWear Song Search.

With this said, a pretty impressive function you’ll be able to perform on your Android Wear device now includes monitoring and controlling your phone or tablet’s camera remotely from your wrist. This is possible with an app developed by XDA Forum Member wuxiekeji called Wear Camera Remote. This app allows you to see through your device’s camera lens on your watch, take a picture by tapping the watch face, and start a 5 second self-timer by long-pressing the watch face. The other great thing about Wear Camera Remote is that it’s completely open source, so you can play with the code all you want.

Wuxiekeji warns that the app is still pretty much in its very early stages, with a few bugs yet to be ironed out. However, if you would still like to give this a try, head over to the Wear Camera Remote app thread for more information.
