MEMI Wants to Be The Pretty Side of Wearable Tech
Wearable technology, especially smartwatches, have been criticized for being void of any fashion sense and even ugly.
In comes the MEMI - a chic iPhone compatible bracelet designed to be just as functional as it is a piece of jewellery. The team behind the wearable are a group of women who wanted to create a piece of wearable tech that would actually be worn by women.
”We believe that fashion and function are equally important. Our friends don’t want to wear big, black, bulky tech devices. If fact, they don’t wear “devices,” they wear jewelry. So we set out to create a bracelet that is both stylish and functional. We’ve gone to great lengths to disguise our technology in fashion jewelry so MEMI can easily be incorporated into any wardrobe,” the team explains on their Kickstarter page.
The MEMI isn’t as robust as a smartwatch, however. The vision for MEMI is to allow it to vibrate to notify its wearer to check their phone. MEMI will let you customize your vibrations so that you can tell if your husband, babysitter or boss is calling or texting, for example.
The MEMI is actively crowdfunding on Kickstarter and have nearly raised half of their $100,000 goal with 20 days to go.
What do you think girls? Would you wear this?
