ZettaBeam is a media player, based off X-Box media center. The ZettaBeam device is produced by a startup, aimed at the Chinese market. Code Monastery in Sydney were contracted to build an app for controlling the ZettaBeam device via android smart phones. I worked closely with Code Monasteries junior Android developer to produce the ZettaBeam app. The app was based off the open source ‘Kore’ application. I was responsible for the overall software architecture, along with helping to manage Code Monasteries android developer on a day to day basis. I also developed a significant portion of the ZettaBeam application, modifying the existing Kore codebase and implementing a new UI. The UI needed to be built in a way that would allow the app to be translated into chinese.
The ZettaBeam hardware is currently undergoing testing and will be available for purchase in China shortly.
