A new smartband has launched over on the Kickstarter crowdfunding website this week that is available to back from as little as $65 and provides you with a wealth of features and functionality to help control mobile devices and track your lifestyle.
Bitbrick enables you to use hand and arm movements and gestures, to control your music, take photos, pick-up calls, post to Facebook, monitor your activity and more.
The Bitbrick smartband has been specifically designed to offer easy access to control the most important smartphone features without continually interrupting your day. Watch the promotional video below to see how the Bitbrick smartband may be able to help you. Its developers explain a little more about its design :
“Bitbrick Band monitors a variety of physical activities, calculates steps, calories burned, distance, and performance and customizes your training on the go. Snap the best selfies and group photos up to ten feet away.
Control your PowerPoint or Keynote presentations with simple hand gesture, up to eight meters from the screen. Respond with an SMS automatically with a hand gesture. Share your emotions on Facebook with a simple gesture: I feel happy, excited or in Love.”
The Bitbrick smartband supports both Android and iOS devices and is equipped with Bluetooth 4.1 and NFC connectivity as well as being equipped with a three axis accelerometer, vibration alarm, and buzzer. As well as IPX7 water resistant certification, enabling you to take a shower still wearing the device and not worry that it will be damaged.
