SPIN remote API launched on GitHub

What would you control?

Sphero BB-8 and SPIN remote. Future partners?

Controlling the Sphero Star Wars BB-8 with SPIN remote: will you make this happen?

You may have seen our viral videos on Facebook or Youtube. The ones where SPIN remote controlled a water tap, opened the blinds or even a kitchen mixer. Unfortunately these applications haven’t been developed for SPIN remote, yet.

The good news however is that as of now, it actually is possible to develop these usages. Not just by us, but by others as well. For all those entrepreneurial developers and SPIN remote enthusiasts we have released the SPIN remote API. We can show you new things with the SPIN remote, but we are sure we can learn a lot from you, the SPIN remote community as well.

What's an API anyway, you may wonder? Well in short: we provided the building blocks of the SPIN remote so others can create new uses for SPIN remote or expand on existing functions. Create additional functions for SPIN remote to control Philips Hue lights? Be our guest. Build a way for SPIN remote to communicate with your house’s Wifi-powered sun screens? Go ahead. Spread the simplicity we too want to spread with SPIN remote.

You can find the SPIN remote API and open source QuickStart apps for Android and iOS on Github here. For additional support please visit the For Developers portal on our site. 

Happy coding!
