Microsoft SmartGlass Gets Real at E3
The rumors have been spurring around the magical tech wheel for months. And now, it is real! Microsoft unveiled today at E3 their new SmartGlass technology for Xbox, Windows 8, and mobile devices. What exactly is smartglass? Well, it’s a technology that allows an Xbox or Windows 8 device to be controlled by phones, tablets, and other mobile devices- all via a new app from the company. In other words, Nintendo should just give up the Wii U and hang their head in shame, as Microsoft has revealed the future of device integration, as it should have been from the start. Users of iOS, Android, and Windows Phone 7 will be able to download the app to their device and control their computer and Xbox with it. And it will all happen seamlessly. And at the same time, your mobile device becomes the center for excess data not on the big screen- which will really help cut down the clutter and at the same time become more of a convenience for the end user. Oh, and it’s free. Everybody likes free stuff, right?
