Pebble hires former webOS designers to help create next-gen UI
Pebble has hired two former leaders of the webOS design team to help them create the next generation version of their user interface made for their wearable devices.
According to The Verge, Itai Vonshak will now be Pebble's new head of product and UX, while Liron Damir will take over as the company's head of design. Both men worked at HP on webOS and then followed the operating system to LG, where they worked to create the webOS-based user interface for the company's smart televisions.
It sounds like it may be a little while before we see Vonshak and Damir's work at Pebble publicly. In a brief chat with The Verge, Vonshak stated that their work with Pebble will focus on the company's product, but at the same time will also have a "a spirit of openness" as well. We are not quite sure what that means but we will certainly learn more about this development at Pebble in the months ahead. In the meantime, what do you think about these former webOS designers jumping ship to work at Pebble?
