Intel Web 2.0 TDK now available - interesting?

We've release the 0.5 version of the Intel Web 2.0 TDK (available for download at The name is bit a misnomer and reeks of marketing It really targeted at AJAX-based applications.

Basically, the TDK allows programmatic access to various aspects of the computing platform (power, connectivity, storage, etc.) via JavaScript. An AJAX application can use the infomation to modify its behavior, i.e. don't start a large down when this is little power or low bandwidth.Essentially, it's a collection of plug-ins and a JavaScript library. We provide full source andthe TDK has very liberal licensing - you can pretty much do anything with it.

It's not perfect and has a lot of gaps and warts, but we wanted to get it out so that we can get some feedback. There's a pretty good discusion about the TDK on Ajaxian (

Give demo video a look. It demonstrated the basic functionality of the TDK.

In the near future we'll be releasing an update (v0.6) which cleans up a lot of the code and docs. Another, thing we're adding is widgets. These are prepacked gauges (battery, processor utilization, connectivity indicators) that can be embedded in a web page with a single line of code:

PowerIndicatorExample = new powerIndicator( ... );

I'll be posting a video that shows it in action

I'm interested in hearing your suggestions, concerns, and comments. We're very early in the project so this is a good time for input.
