    "it’s possible to connect multiple Microsoft Bands to one controlling phone device, so the potential for games or even multiple limb tracking is opened up to developers through the SDK."

    "Microsoft is still building the SDK ... background task on the Windows Phone app"
    That is a big deal, of course only certain sensor(low battery) will be able to be use for back ground task.

    Good read.

    wow, so you can pair 2 or more bands together, very interesting.

    Here is a more full write up of the event by one of the developers, with some interesting tidbits:

    1. Microsoft is aware of the limitations that prevent two-way dialog.
    2. They are anticipating a more full-fledge SDK that will enable a lot more capabilities.

    lol, I was updating before you post but was distracted, hehe. But it was a good read about the things the come with the band SDK. Microsoft is a real good position with the Band that i don't think any other company is going to compete for 1 reason or another.

    The fan thing is pretty cool. Can turning lights off and on be far off?
