Because I live in Portland, I’m often asked if “Portlandia” is accurate.
It is, mostly, and so it seems appropriate to channel an early episode to talk about Glance, our wearables framework.
Actually, Glance has grown beyond wearables to support cars and other devices, the latest of which is Noel’s (@noelportugal) gadget du jour, the LaMetric Time (@smartatoms).
Insert mildly amusing video here.
And of course Noel had to push Glance notifications to LaMetric, because Noel. Pics, it happened.
The text is truncated, and I tried to take a video of the scrolling notification, but it goes a bit fast for the camera. Beyond just the concept, we’ll have to break up the notification to fit LaMetric’s model better, but this was only a few minutes of effort from Noel. I know, because he was sitting next to me while he coded it.
In case you need a refresher, here’s Glance of a bunch of other things.
I didn’t have a separate camera so I couldn’t show the Android notification.
We haven’t updated the framework for them, but if you recall, Glance also worked on Google Glass and Pebble in its 1.0 version.
