In this class, the integration of environmental sensors and Google Glass will be presented. Glass presents an unique opportunity to examine the environment around the wearer in real time. Environmental Sensors are rapidly evolving in size power, and portability to the point where they are essentially wearable and always on.

Pebble Snap Readme

Known Issues

httpebble

There is a know limitation on iOS that limits phone to watch communication to the foreground application (more details here). If your device is running httpebble then you will have to stop httpebble in order for Pebble Snap to connect to your Pebble Watch.  Pebble Snap will automatically disconnect when switching away to another app and reconnect when opened again. To manually disconnect press the camera icon in the iOS app and it will turn red when disconnected. If the Pebble Snap watch app is open on the Pebble watch it will display and vibrate on connect/disconnect.

iOS 7

iOS 7 is not fully supported. A new version of Pebble Snap will be released after iOS 7 is released to the public by Apple.

As reported by a Pebble Snap user on iOS 7:

1) Install app,
2) Using Safari on your iOS device install watch face
3) CLOSE OUT THE APP completely (double press home button, swipe it closed)
4) Reboot the app

Voila, taking pictures now works smooth as butter on ios 7. The issue seems to be that once you launch the app, and then install the watch face, the app does not attempt to reset a connection to the pebble.
