We’ve just released new build guides on how to build Linux mainline kernel for Xperia devices and how to build a minimal version of Linux for Xperia devices. With these assets, you can experiment with IoT prototyping, or join the development of support for Xperia devices in the Linux kernel. Learn about this, and find out how the Open Device program got its start after the jump.
We’re excited to let you know about our upcoming public SDK, allowing the creation of AR effects for use with Sony’s own AR effect app on Xperia devices. The SDK should be available by the end of this month.
Hi, my name is Ahmet Yildirim and I’m a Software Engineer working with Sony’s SmartEyeglass. To showcase one of the many ways that you can utilize SmartEyeglass as a complete hands-free solution, my colleagues Robert McCain, Marlin Liew and I developed a sample application called ‘Livestreaming App for SmartEyeglass’. You can use the SmartEyeglass camera to show a colleague what you are looking at while they communicate with you through text that displays on SmartEyeglass.
This week, SmartEyeglass have a booth at CES, the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, featuring new demos and use cases. One of the demos is from APX Labs which uses SmartEyeglass as a heads up display with a wearable barcode scanner. We invited Jay Kim, the Chief Strategy Officer from APX Labs, to discuss the real benefit of smart glasses for material handling.
Sony SmartEyeglass, the augmented reality binocular glasses, will have a dedicated booth at CES (the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada), Jan 6-9th 2016. If you’d like to see how SmartEyeglass could enhance your business or enterprise using augmented reality, visit us at the booth during CES.
A few months ago, we announced the availability of recovery mode for a range of unlocked Xperia devices. Support for this feature is now available on previously unsupported, unlocked devices – Xperia Z3 Compact, Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, Xperia Z3, Xperia Z2 Tablet, and Xperia Z2. Find out more about how to use recovery mode for kernel development and troubleshooting after the jump.
Developer World recently caught up with Martin Fodor, a founding member of AndroPixel Studios (APS), to discuss the beginnings of the company, what success means to them, and their methods for creation and promotion of Xperia themes. Check out the interview below.
To make it easier for community developers to work with the Xperia™ devices supported in our Open Device program, we are now providing instructions for how to access the UART ports on these. UART ports are extremely useful when working on embedded development, and are commonly used by developers to observe boot and debug messages, interact with the system via a shell, and for kernel development.
