Interesting thing - the live feed is not playing the music. Dunno why.

02:51 PM on Tuesday, January 08

TH: And to play us out. Maroon 5.

02:50 PM on Tuesday, January 08

TH: And what drove in is a Roll Royce. Gasoline removed and batteries replacing it.

02:49 PM on Tuesday, January 08

TH: From phones, to apps, to something. Now, we're looking at electric vehicles. They are working on Qualcomm Halo - wireless electric charging for cars.

02:47 PM on Tuesday, January 08

TH: Yeah, she needs to work with her marketing...

02:47 PM on Tuesday, January 08

TH: Basically, this new Star Wars app is like a twisted version of FourSquare.

02:44 PM on Tuesday, January 08

TH: Using a whole bunch of technology, like audio recognition and geolocation.

02:44 PM on Tuesday, January 08

TH: Now, we're talking of the new apps - outside of trying to get spoilers. It's a game where using local promotion, you get points to become stronger.

02:42 PM on Tuesday, January 08

TH: Partnering with Paramount on promoting the film. Alice Eve on stage.

02:39 PM on Tuesday, January 08

TH: So, Big Bird outsource coding to a bunch of owls.

02:34 PM on Tuesday, January 08

TH: I'm sorry, I really can't take this developer seriously when he's wearing that hat. And bird wings.

02:33 PM on Tuesday, January 08

TH: The game, "Big Bird Words" - built on vuforia. You basically take your "wordoscope" (your phone) and will read it for you.

02:32 PM on Tuesday, January 08

SW: Big Bird is showing us an app...

02:32 PM on Tuesday, January 08

SW: I'm fairly sure this is the weirdest keynote ever.

02:31 PM on Tuesday, January 08
