The Awear Mission
Awear is building a wearables developer platform that provides cross platform development tools, context APIs and innovative distribution channels.
We believe true ambient intelligence will emerge from the intersection of wearables and big data. Our vision is to deliver a set of technologies that power a wearables ecosystem where app developers create entirely new user experiences based on context. A wearable ecosystem where developers aren't held back by a vertical hardware model, where devices are interoperable and where form isn't married to function.
Awear is founded by the first engineer at OpenFeint, the worlds largest social mobile gaming platform for iOS and Android that grew to over 200M users, 20K developers and sold to GREE in 2011 for $104M. Awear was recently accepted into the Studio 9+ accelerator run by Peter Relan who incubated OpenFeint, Crowdstar, Spaceport, Agawi and more.
