Razer announced the availability of a software development kit (SDK) for its Switchblade user interface:
Razer™, the world leader in high-performance gaming hardware, announced the development of a Software Development Kit (SDK) for the award-winning Switchblade User Interface (UI). Game developers and users of the Razer Blade, Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ gaming keyboard, and the newly launched Razer DeathStalker Ultimate will now be able to develop applications with the new Software Development Kit.
The Switchblade UI’s 10 dynamic adaptive tactile keys and LCD panel allow for two modes that offer a full, vibrant display and a trackpad. Users will be able to utilize the award-winning features of the SwitchBlade UI in creating applications of the developer’s choosing.
With the newly developed SDK, developers can freely create new applications for the Switchblade UI with possibilities ranging from informative guides, mini-maps, inventory slots, and other elevating features, all based in a free and open development model. Interested applicants may submit their inquiries to SBUI_support@razerzone.com or visit Razer SwitchBlade UI site www.razerzone.com/switchblade-ui for a chance to craft out the apps of their choosing. Developers are required to have knowledge of C++ and C Sharp programming.
“With the development of the SDK for the Switchblade UI, we are pleased to offer every game developer the ability to create applications that will enhance their immersive experience for their favorite games,” said Robert “RazerGuy” Krakoff, president of Razer USA. “I am eager to see the types of applications that can be made by our passionate and creative fans inside the development community.”
