RubyMotion, the Apple Watch, and Accessibility

Check out this talk I gave at Philly Cocoa, a meetup for Mac and iOS programmers. It covers what we know about Apple Watch’s accessibility (not much) and shows how to build an Apple Watch extension in RubyMotion. For more information check out Apple’s WKInterfaceObject reference. I also released a new version of Motion-Accessibility with initial WatchKit support.

Apple has created the first accessible wearable but has said nothing, preferring to talk about the beautiful gold color of their new laptop or how Tim Cook wishes someone would send him some heartbeats. They made quite a presentation of the health benefits the Apple Watch will bring, and I believe accessibility fits into this theme. Right now we have only rumor and reference. Hopefully all this will change shortly. I can hardly wait!</audio>
