This is your first chance to have a look inside the Nymi Band Discovery Kit. We've begun to ship the Nymi Band Discovery Kit out to hundreds of developers so that the Nymi Ecosystem can continue to grow.
As most of you have heard, we’ve begun to ship out our Nymi Band Discovery Kits to developers across the globe. These Discovery Kits provide developers with the hardware they need to finalize applications for the Nymi Ecosystem.
Now that our developers across the globe have begun to receive the Nymi Band Discovery Kit, and have the Nymi Band on their wrist, it seemed like the ideal time to unveil The Nymi Band Walkthrough Series. In this series of videos, we will be giving you guided tours of various aspects of the Nymi Band and what it’s like to use it.
Our Nymi platform team was at the AT&T Developer Summit this past weekend, to evangelize the platform and the capabilities of the Nymi Band to a host of developers that came from across the globe to hack the latest technology. This as my first Developer event since recently joining the Nymi team, and I couldn't wait to see what kind of response we would get!
Fittingly, we got the theatre bar as the spot to set up our makeshift booth. We laid out Nymi Band Discovery Kits, T-shirts (100 set out- though they were gone within an hour), stickers, key-chains, and adorned the bar with Nymi logos. As we had only a limited number Nymi Band Discovery Kits on hand, we asked teams to review the Beta SDK and architecture first before handing them out.
The response was incredible! We had droves of developers and tech enthusiasts come by to better understand the capabilities of the Nymi Band, the offerings of the Beta SDK, API details, supported platforms, design of the Nymi Band, how it operates, and pricing details. Balaji, our Director of Platform, also gave a presentation on the Nymi Band as part of an Enterprise Wearables track session in cooperation with Ericsson, who sponsored a dedicated prize for this category.
This is a very big week for us here at Nymi. The Nymi Beta SDK and the Nymulator have been available for free download since this summer, and while there are hundreds of Developers all around the world building unique and useful Nymi-Enabled Applications, many have told us that they're eagerly waiting for an actual Nymi Band to be in their hands before finalizing and commercializing their projects.
One thing that gets us all very excited at Nymi is the idea of our customers using and experimenting with final production Nymi Bands. We’ve put a lot of thought and effort into them, so when we see Nymi Bands in the hands of supporters, we can’t help but get excited.
