What's particularly awesome about SmartStraps is how open the framework is... anybody can make SmartStraps; 3D printer files for the adapter are published as well as the electrical spec and the API will be public. At the connector you get power and a one-wire serial interface.

Maker kindred will have a field day. Anybody can brew an idea.  The exact opposite of many other smartphone makers' strategies.

It's genius.

Oh no :/

It feels like I've lost an out of town uncle, very sad. I'm glad he prospered in his not long enough life.

Story
Introduction

Myriam Joire (tnkgrl) was born wearing combat boots and holding a keyboard; moments later she picked up a soldering iron. She's been stomping, typing and hacking ever since. After spending years being a code-monkey in the video game industry, she joined Engadget as Senior Mobile Editor and later Pebble as Chief Evangelist. She’s been called a “personality” and a “pundit“, but despite being (in)ternet famous, she’s just a tomboy with a fondness for other queers, punks, nerds, and misbegotten social deviants. She's based in San Francisco.

Tech evangelist. Former editor at Engadget. I blog about mobile. I hack stuff. I'm a developer. I'm queer.
