Daily Tech Find: Sony LiveView Android Remote

sony-ericsson-liveview

The LiveView Android remote from Sony is wearable (think watch) and lets you get instant updates and launch any app. The LiveView came about when Sony Extras partnered with the London College of Fashion to get new, fresh ideas on wearable technology. The idea reminds me of the WiMM One Watch I recently covered. The Android Market app automatically connects your favorite Android apps to LiveView. A smartphone remote like this is a great idea, I think. As an iPhone user, I’m doubtful that Apple will ever come out with a device like this, but it would be great if a third party could create something similar for iPhones. It’s always a pain to have to reach in my pocket to find out what my latest notifications are so I would welcome a quicker way to get at timely info.
