Jolla Shop: The Other Half & TOH designer kit


Jolla has introduced two new The Other Halves, and a downloadable TOH developer kit for designing the content for TOH.

See and hear them! (preview to the ring tone included)

The Other Half is an original Jolla innovation. With more than a fresh coat of paint, each colour option packs a unique ambience with custom tones, wallpapers and more. Your Jolla detects The Other Half and instantly adapts the look and feel of your phone with the wireless NFC technology.

The Other Half Developer kit (download for free)

The Other Half Developer kit includes

  • official 3D print file
  • ambience template files
  • instructions for building ambience rpm packets
  • instructions for using NFC UID and getting desired content downloadable for customers
  • full technical specifications of TOH (i2c, bluetooth, power, NFC etc.) in a pdf file. Good images included.
  • community licence

With this kit, 3rd parties are able to

  • Construct The Other Halves (requires 3D printer)
  • Develop TOH's which take advantage of i2c slave equipment, external charging, WLAN or Bluetooth connection
Community licence enables free developing of TOH for any 3rd party (non-commercial use). However, downloadable content (images, photos, tones, videos, apps (rpm) or other files) requires an agreement with Jolla, as downloading is always done from Jolla Store with unique NFC UID numbers. NFC tag is not required when developing TOH's without downloadable content.

NOTE: Making NFC tags requires empty tags & a possibility to save unique UID's to the tags. NFC tags are a must for any downloadable content, and range of UID's must be reserved from Jolla Store with an agreement between the content provider and Jolla.

As a community, we are looking forward for new DIY projects and commercial project taking advantage of this special feature of Jolla Smarphone. Jolla also wishes that some projects take  place at together.jolla.com, designers and customers doing it together (DIT). At Together, there are at least 3 discussions already involved directly into the subject, probably of lot of projects joining in later. Join the group!
