If smart watches are too much for you, perhaps a smart bracelet will fit your lifestyle. One such project is currently raising funds and awareness at Kickstarter, the popular crowd-sourcing community.
Rather than boasting a display, the EMRBACE+ will vibrate and blink to inform you about incoming calls, messages and other notifications that need your attention. By working in pair with a dedicated app (which will be available for iOS and Android smartphones), this handy accessory can go beyond basic phone alerts to include notifications from a number of different apps and services, social networking updates included.
The bracelet is super-customizable, allowing you set the vibration type and color for different kinds of alerts, different contacts from your phonebook and so on.
As you would imagine, it’s a water-proof device (up to 5ATM) that you’ll be able to carry even while swimming…
The team behind this project is looking to raise $220,000, and in order to secure your unit, you’ll have to pledge at least $49. Check out the video below to get a better idea what EMRBACE+ can do for you and whether you want to support it or not.
