Sep 28, 2015, 09:00 ET from Polyera

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Polyera, a leading flexible electronics company, today revealed the hardware and software specifications of the Wove Band and a program for artists, developers and designers to begin working with prototypes in December.

The Wove Band is a wearable device with a flexible display roughly five times the surface of a smartwatch. 

Wove's Android-based OS runs compositions, which are like apps, but made for wearing. Wove offers three ways to make compositions: a Java SDK for those familiar with Android development, a Web SDK for those familiar with HTML5/CSS3/JS, and a graphics tool for those familiar with image editing and graphic creation. With Wove's creation tools, a wide range of people can make compositions that combine aesthetics and utility in entirely new ways.

Leading app and service partners from a range of categories are currently building compositions for Wove. In addition, a limited number of Wove 0.1 prototypes will be given to a select group of artists, developers and designers, beginning in December. Starting today, those interested in exploring Wove's potential can apply on Wove.com. Wove will launch commercially in 2016.
