Today’s XDA:DevCon 2014 session video continues from yesterday’s talk by Andreas Göransson entitled Building Wearable Apps with Android. Today’s talk is from another Sony staff member. Earlier we heard from Sony staffer Alin Jerpelea’s with his session AOSP For Sony Devices: Past, Present and Future.

Our presenter Troed Sångberg is a developer advocate with Sony Developer Relations. His many years in technology include a core technical background in the home computer scene of the 80s, professional telecom develoment since the late 90s and most recently he has worked in research. His research frees his interest in the intersection between disruptive technology and the culture of society. Troed considers decentralization of creation – how anyone anywhere can invent, distribute and disrupt – to be the major game changer of our times. His presentation is entitled, Beyond Smartphones, And How To Get There.

Sångberg extrapolates the last 8000 years of human innovation into the realities of the present and near future. He discusses the SDKs available for current and soon-to-come functionality, as well as new services Sony’s introducing to drastically reduce friction for developers with regards to app verification. In this presentation you will see tech details on SmartWatch, SmartBand, SmartEyeglass and Wi-Fi controlled Sony cameras.
