Google Announced “Android Wear” Operating System for Smartwatches

Google telah mengumumkan Android Wear, sebuah versi sistem operasi mobile-nya diperuntukkan bagi smartwatches dan perangkat wearables lainnya. Menurut Google di official blog-nya, mereka sudah bekerjasama dengan beberapa industri elektronik seperti Asus, HTC, LG, Motorola dan Samsung serta pabik pembuat chip Boradcom, Imagination, Intel, Mediatek dan Qualcomm. Saat ini Android Wear lebih fokus ke smartwatches dan saat ini sudah bekerja sama dengan salah satu fashion brands Fosil Group.

Android Wear berfokus pada notification yang cepat untuk menampilkan informasi yang diperlukan pengguna smartwatches sekaligus mengurangi interaksi yang minimum dengan perangkat.  Berikut katalog yang diberikan Android Wear dari blognya:

  • Useful information when you need it most. Android Wear shows you info and suggestions you need, right when you need them. The wide variety of Android applications means you’ll receive the latest posts and updates from your favorite social apps, chats from your preferred messaging apps, notifications from shopping, news and photography apps, and more. 
  • Straight answers to spoken questions. Just say “Ok Google” to ask questions, like how many calories are in an avocado, what time your flight leaves, and the score of the game. Or say “Ok Google” to get stuff done, like calling a taxi, sending a text, making a restaurant reservation or setting an alarm. 
  • The ability to better monitor your health and fitness. Hit your exercise goals with reminders and fitness summaries from Android Wear. Your favorite fitness apps can give you real-time speed, distance and time information on your wrist for your run, cycle or walk. 
  • Your key to a multiscreen world. Android Wear lets you access and control other devices from your wrist. Just say “Ok Google” to fire up a music playlist on your phone, or cast your favorite movie to your TV. There’s a lot of possibilities here so we’re eager to see what developers build. 
Bari para pengembang sudah bisa berperan serta di Android Wear, buka halaman http://developer.android.com/wear/ dan join serta dowload developer preview-nya di http://developer.android.com/wear/preview/start.html

Silent love is calling faith
To shatter me through your hallways
Into echoes you can feel
And rehearse the way you heal

Make them dance
Just like you
Cause you make me move
Yeah you always make me go

I’ll run away with your footsteps
I’ll build a city that dreams for two
And if you lose yourself
I will find you

High on words we almost used
We’re fireworks with a wet fuse
Flying planes with paper wheels
To the same achilles heels

Make them dance
Just like you
Cause you make me move
Yeah you always make me go

I’ll run away with your footsteps
I’ll build a city that dreams for two
And if you lose yourself
I will find you

Open up your skies (Turn up your night)
To the speed of light (Turn up your night)
Put your love in lights (Turn up your night)
I will find you

Make them dance
Just like you
Cause you make me move
Yeah you always make me go
Yeah you always make me go

I’ll run away with your footsteps
I’ll build a city that dreams for two
And if you lose yourself
I will find you

Yeah you always make me go

Turn up your night
Turn up your night
Turn it up, turn it up

I will find you

Make them dance
Just like you
Cause you make me move
Yeah you always make me go

DCONSTRUCTED The World’s Hottest DJs/Producers Remix Disney Repertoire Set

Walt Disney Records will release DCONSTRUCTED, a comprehensive compilation of classic and current music from the longstanding Disney catalog remixed by today’s hottest DJs/producers from across the globe. The 14-track collection features reworks of material from the multiple Academy Award®-winning films The Lion King and Frozen, as well as two of Daft Punk’s contributions to TRON: Legacy.

EDM superstars Avicii, Armin Van Buuren and Kaskade are among the electronic dance music luminaries that have lent their formidable skills to these timeless favorites. The reworked material ranges from more recent heartwarmers from Monsters University, The Incredibles, and The Muppets to beloved and lasting sounds from the Hawaiiannette album featuring the beloved Mickey Mouse Club darling, Annette Funicello, Toy Story, Sleeping Beauty, Dumbo, as well as music inspired by the original Mickey Mouse cartoons, and the enduring theme from the Disneyland Park’s Main Street Electrical Parade.

The blending of the orchestral world of Disney with the synthetic sounds of the electronic world brings out fresh flavors. The recognizable cries and roars of The Lion King’s “Circle Of Life” mix headily with Mat Zo’s growling basslines and razor-sharp synth stabs. Daft Punk’s abbreviated “Derezzed” is freshened up with vocals courtesy of Negin and extended with Avicii’s twinkling rhythms. Similarly, the previously unreleased Japanese Popstars Remix of Daft Punk’s “Fall” stretches out that track’s inquisitive beats with layers of echo. The newly minted Oscar® winner for Best Original Song “Let It Go,” is transformed to a peak-of-the-night banger with Armin Van Buuren’s tranced out take on Idina Menzel’s sparkling vocals.

Says Van Buuren, “I feel incredibly honored to have remixed an Oscar-winning song—though I didn’t know that yet when I started.

My first remix of Daft Punk’s TRON: Legacy was so long ago, but it was a significant moment of recognition in my career,” says Avicii. “It’s great to be a part of it again, to refresh the track, and to let everyone hear Negin’s voice.

The makeovers of these universally appealing songs show off their renovations the most when the sounds from over half a century ago are brought to the present time. Stonebridge takes inspiration from the immutable Mickey Mouse cartoons for his new track, “Hey Pluto!” which takes Mickey’s identifiable squeak and Pluto’s barks and uses them as sound effects for the track’s creeping shuffles. Snippets of Sleeping Beauty’s carousel-like “Once Upon A Dream” are interspersed through Trion’s tweaked out remix and much of Main Street Electrical Parade’s feelgood vibe is maintained for the updated Extended Mix. Kaskade’s crafted approach to Dumbo’s sentimental “Baby Mine” maintains the original’s emotions bringing those to the present time with softly rounded beats and gently building house rhythms.

  1. “Circle of Life” (Mat Zo Remix) – Carmen Twillie & Lebo M. The Lion King
