Microsoft SmartGlass SDK Released

Microsoft has released the SmartGlass Software Development Kit (SDK), giving developer partners a chance to implement the company's new multiplatform interactive video platform into their products and service – or just tinker with it. According to the information already released about SmartGlass during E3, the technology allows for remote control functions, and additional interactive content for movies, TV shows, and games using various devices including a desktop computer, tablet, or smartphone.

The availability of the SDK is limited to Microsoft employees and partners who are already signed up to the Microsoft Game Developer Network. The SDK contains SmartGlass studio, a JavaScript library for cross-platform development and a sample application. SmartGlass launches later this year. It will be interesting to see what those with early access to the SDK will do with it, particularly when it comes to games.
