$600,000 worth of hardware is now in the hands of engineering students and young entrepreneurs
Pebble has taken the wraps off a new project today, where 4,000 Pebble smartwatches were given to CS and engineering programs at CMU, Stanford, MIT, Virginia Tech and other technology schools across the US. While Pebble estimates the cost of the donations to be over $600,000, the benefit of having their hardware in the hands of the next generation of thinkers and makers is priceless.
Pebble recently released their new and improved SDK, so attracting minds to work with it is a natural course of action. There are already thousands of applications for the Pebble, but the new SDK — and a group of talented individuals to work with it — should create some great new content.
The Pebble and it's well-documented SDK is a great tool for budding developers and old pros alike. And hopefully, if the next Alan Turing is out there, he or she gets a chance to spend some time with one. You can read more at the source link below.
