Here are Audi’s Open webOS and Android Wear watches in action

Audi’s foray into smartwatches has kicked off some confusion here at CES, over whether the car company is working on Open webOS or Android Wear. Turns out, the answer is "both". SlashGear sat down with Audi’s engineers responsible for both projects, to take a walk through the “Secure Key” project that will allow phones and smartwatches from multiple manufacturers to wirelessly start the car, locate it in distant parking lots, and even loan virtual keys to colleagues and friends.

The next few months will be sad ones for remaining fans of the ill-fated webOS platform. HP has just updated its Developer FAQ page that marks the beginning of the end for webOS, at least from its part of the webOS world. Remaining owners of (the very few) webOS devices out in the wild will soon have no place to go to, presuming they haven't left for greener pastures.
