Amazon Releases Fire Phone SDK To Developers, Includes Support For Firefly, Dynamic Perspective, Motion Gestures, Active Widgets, And More

Amazon Releases Fire Phone SDK To Developers, Includes Support For Firefly, Dynamic Perspective, Motion Gestures, Active Widgets, And More

Jeff Bezos took to the stage earlier today to announce Amazon's first entrant into the highly competitive smartphone industry, the Fire Phone. Not only was the presentation loaded with some of the shiny new features of the handset and Fire OS, all meant for the press to disseminate to potential buyers, but there were also a few unusually blunt efforts to attract developers. In the midst of demonstrating Firefly and Dynamic Perspective, portions of the presentation were focused on explaining that developers would be able to extend these platform features in their own apps.

WSJ Says Amazon Is Working On Two Smartphones... With The Caveat That The Projects Could Be Shelved At Any Time

According to the Wall Street Journal, Amazon is working on making not one, but two smartphones. And one of them will have some kind of awesome quasi-holographic glasses-free 3D display. That sounds like the kind of 3D people might actually want! The other one is... a phone of some kind. That's literally all the detail that was provided.

The one you're actually interested in, though, did come with a few extra tidbits about this glasses-free holographic voodoo magic. The Journal's sources claim that the phone will use "retina-tracking" technology to display an image that appears to actually float above the screen at any angle, and that this technology may also allow navigation of some parts of the phone using only your eyes.
