Hack This Wristwatch To Check-In To Facebook Places

The customizable InPulse wristwatch can check in to Facebook Paces, albeit with a significant amount of tinkering.

I’m adding this to my wish list: The customizable InPulse wristwatch can check in to Facebook Paces, albeit with a significant amount of tinkering demonstrated in the video below.

The code you can see by clicking here is a sample of how the developer used Java to pull data from Facebook and send it to inPulse. While not a complete overview, it illustrates how it was completed. Missing from the code is the response from the Facebook graph application programming interface as well as the subsequent call to perform an actual check-in. We also don’t know anything about the inPulse protocol library, however it’s definitely an interesting hack.

While we know that the requisite Java code only works on the InPulse phone, we haven’t confirmed whether it can synchronize with other types of mobile phones besides the Android. Have any of you tried it?
