Have a Windows 10 Mobile phone? Got a dock? Maybe you don’t want any of that jazz in order to experience something like Continuum? Well, Neptune has been working on its Suite of products that puts all the important guts in a smartwatch called “the Hub” and broadcasts all the interfacing elements to various screens from phones, tablets and TVs (though that last one needs an HDMI dongle). And yes, it runs Android.
We’ve had doubts that the software for this idea could hold up, though. How much latency can we really get down to without wires? Not much, apparently.
The Neptune team has shared this GIF showing off its Link software in action. All things considered, keeping things under half a second or so of lag seems quite decent to us, though we are looking at a testbench, not real life usage.
“What is this GIF you see above? It’s both proof of concept and backer validation, that’s what,” a representative for Neptune said.
The Indiegogo project ended up with about $1,17 million in funds last May and was originally scheduled to deliver on perks in February, but Neptune has obviously pushed back that timeline.
