Almond+ Alpha Web UI Video Walkthrough
First of all, apologies for the slightly later than promised update.
The goal with this video is to show you a walkthrough of the alpha version of the Almond+ web UI. Hopefully we’ve managed to include many of the features that have been requested here on Kickstarter. Keep in mind that the web UI is still very much a work on progress and several parts of it isn’t finished in terms of functionality. As you’ve most likely noticed, the web UI for home automation isn’t present, but our software team is working hard on finalizing it and we’ll bring you more video updates as things progress. Other parts of the UI need to be tweaked either in terms of layout or in terms of functionality, but considering that our software team is creating daily builds of NutsOS, things are progressing quickly. We’ve also got the LCD up and running, but we want this to be fully functional before we post a video of it.
The video is best viewed at native 1080p resolution.
We’d like to hear your comments about the UI and the features we’ve implemented so far. Keep in mind that there’s a feature freeze for the Almond+ until we’ve shipped all of the units to you, our Kickstarter backers. But as already mentioned, some features aren’t fully implemented in the video and will be improved greatly between now and to the time the Almond+ is going into production.
The Almond+ is here for the long term and as such, we’ll see what we can implement over time when it comes to new features, just as we’ve done with the Almond. This is also one of the exciting aspects of the hardware platform we ended up choosing for the Almond+ in the end, it gives us much greater flexibility to add new features, as the Almond+ has enough processing power and memory to handle a wide range of tasks simultaneously. Let’s not forget that the Almond+ also has support for third party developers to add features and we’re hoping we’ll see some interesting projects from our developer tier backers as soon as they get their hands on the hardware.
