Control your Tesla Model S remotely via an Android Wear smartwatch
posted by Paul.K / Jul 28, 2014, 8:52 AM
Right now, the Tesla Command app can lock/unlock the doors, open/close the sunroof, and honk the horn of the car. These are all done via swipe and touch on the smartwatch's screen, so for those of you who were quick to start dreaming about voice-controlling a car – sorry, not yet. But don't get disheartened, future Knight Riders – this app is based on tech, initially developed for Google Glass, which means that voice was always considered a primary option. It's just that app developers are still having trouble gaining access to the voice command module of the Glass platform, thus Bnotions was forced to settle for the watch's touch-screen instead.
So, if you own a Tesla Model S and an Android Wear smartwatch, grab the app from the link below and go about being cool. If you don't own the car – download the app and make futuristic sounds when you press the buttons. Because why not?

I'm just glad that the watch is becoming more than a notification window on your wrist. That was my biggest fear with Android Wear. Now that it's out and actively being developed for, I'm curious to see what people do with the device.

One thing about Android wear that no other smart watch has brought to the table, was a way to bring actions to the smart watch, without the need to create an actual app for the Android wear watch. That's why you open certain apps on your Android wear watch like the Google camera app, or Google play all access music app, and more send out the functional cards to the wear watch. So developers can just add wear functionality to their existing phone or tablet apps. This saves lots of development time.
