Quarkz was a simple, bluetooth smartwatch that I designed and built as a research assistant at the MIT Media Lab. The watch contained a single, full color LED light that could be wirelessly controlled by a nearby Android device. In addition to creating the circuit board, watch enclosure, and embedded software, I further wrote a Software Development Kit (SDK) for Android that would let any third party developer create an app that could control the color of the watch. For example, a developer could make an app that flashed the watch green when an important email arrived, or red when the wearer's website was down.
