Learn how to write a Windows Universal App that integrates with the Microsoft Band and Microsoft Band 2. The video demonstrates a two-player jumping jack game that uses the Microsoft Band SDK. It shows how to connect to a Band, send haptics to alert the user, connect to sensors as a means of scoring players, send a tile to the player's band to track scores, and send game results to the player's game tile on their band.
