Samsung announced today that it will be releasing Smart TV SDK 5.0 on January 6th. The updated SDK will allow developers to give Samsung Smart TVs control over home appliances. Want to change the cooling settings on your refrigerator? Your Smart TV might soon allow you to do that, and you won't ever have to leave your favorite seat (you cough potatoes). Also, developers should have a better (and easier) building apps since SDK 5.0 supports HTML5. Native Client allows the same software to run across a range of TVs.
Interested developers will have to wait until January 6th to get their hands on the updated software development kit.
