We have an exciting annoucement to make: we’ve just released an early preview of our SDK! If you’re a software developer and have been waiting to start developing for Moment, here’s your first look. We’re excited to see what you’ll make!
The SDK is still under development, and it’s likely to change in the coming months.
This repository contains the Software Development Kit (SDK) for Moment, the wearable device that communicates entirely through your sense of touch.
We work with local companies whenever we can. For manufacturing and assembly, we work with Quiktek Assembly in Tempe, Arizona. For component sourcing, we work with Avnet, a leading electronics distributor headquartered in Phoenix. Many of our primary partners are within a quick 15-minute drive from our office, and we also are working to source all of our plastics and miscellaneous parts from local distributors.
Beyond keeping Americans employed, we can guarantee a few things almost every big brand (including the ones named after fruit) cannot:
we pay fair wages
we never employ underage workers
our facilities are powered by cleaner sources of energy
we recycle whenever possible
we meet all EPA regulations
We produce and assemble our products in the United States, and we’re always looking for opportunities to bring jobs back here to the USA. It’s the only way we can ensure we deliver an honest, high-quality product that isn’t subsidized by environmental catastrophe and unfair practices. Continue reading “Moment is Made in the USA”
We asked ourselves: what do they all have in common? They all had a video with excellent production value – a video that could cost anywhere from $25,000 to $100,000 or more depending on whether or not the actors were paid.
As a startup that’s bootstrapped and hasn’t raised a large round of investment, we needed to get creative. We used $2,000 of our savings to film a video that could have easily cost 10x as much. We recruited a bunch of our talented friends who are musicians, dancers, researchers, and body builders. Then, we filmed footage and edited until we reached our final iteration:
In the past few years, the growth of wearable technology has exploded. In the process, two types of devices have emerged: smartwatches and health trackers. Smartwatches offer users smartphone notifications pushed to their wrists, where they can interact with the information in a familiar way—through capacitative touch screens while fitness trackers take in a variety of data using sensors, from heart rate to accelerometer measurements, to give users a better understanding of their physical activity.
