Bluetooth Smart coming to Android API 18

One of the important Android announcements made at Google’s recent developers conference was the upcoming support for Bluetooth Smart in the next version of Android. This means that the world of smart-devices and the “Internet of things” will arrive on an Android device near you soon. What smart-devices would you like to see and how would they interact with your Android device?


The L8 SmartLight wireless notifies users of SMS, calls, social media updates, emails and other events. The LED lamp now includes support for accelerometer and ambient noise sensors. This means you can program the SmartLight to light up or display certain patterns and colors when it is triggered by movement or noise.
