April may be the cruelest month, as T.S. Eliot said, unless you’ve been jonesing to hack the massively popular Pebble smartwatch.
Founder Eric Migicovsky has announced that a watch-face SDK (software development kit) for the Pebble will be released in the second week of next month (and that 40,000 Pebbles have been assembled so far).
He showed off some early developer work in the Kickstarter video update below, including watch faces with an animated dragon, Mario running around the screen, and even the first game written for Pebble, featuring a Nokia-style Snake done in very simple graphics.
It’s all very 1980s, but lots of fun.
