The Laptopman Pebble Face

Hey, everyone! I just made a cool new Pebble watch face, so I thought it could be fun to write a brief post about it. Creating it was not easy for me, as I had to look at lots of documentation and example code, figure out C, and get the Pebble SDK up and running. Despite these challenges, after hours of work, I was finally able to create something I’m proud very of. I present to you: The Laptopman Face. This simple Pebble face shows my signature “Laptopman” avatar and the time. However, if you shake it, the face alternates between your laptop pal and his evil twin, so be careful! Anyway, you can check out the project on  GitHub   or get it from the  Rebble Store . Enjoy!
