Microsoft rolls out SmartGlass SDK to first crop of devs

Microsoft on Thursday released the Xbox SmartGlass Software Development Kit (SDK) to partners that have agreements to develop Xbox games and entertainment applications for the Xbox 360.

The device-agnostic SmartGlass application was first revealed at the Electronic Entertainment Expo earlier in June, showing how users will eventually be able to pair their tablet or smartphone with their Xbox 360 for enhanced content consumption and gaming. Now that Microsoft's Surface and Windows Phone 8 initiatives have been revealed, the SmartGlass project has begun to take clearer shape.

Today's SDK release gives developers the Xbox SmartGlass Studio application, the SmartGlass JavaScript library which contains core device APIs, and also a sample application for code examples.

Entertainment app developers eligible for the program can download the SDK at https://developer.xboxlive.com/en-us/xbox/development/downloads/xdks/Documents/SmartGlass/XboxSmartGlass.aspx now.
