Have you ever shown your support for a cause with a button on your shirt or backpack? You only have so much button real estate available. So you have to choose wisely. That’s where BEAM Authentic thinks it can help.
The BEAM button pairs to your phone through an app and lets you display nearly any image you want on the circular AMOLED screen, including slideshows and GIFs. You could promote an environmental cause for awhile and something else the next hour,and something else the next. Or display anything you want to really.
You can use your own creations or find button art from others’ collections, follow creators you like, receive streams and send conversations. There are paid buttons too, of course, where you can donate to a cause while also endorsing it. It’s a pretty great idea. It also features a panic mode that will send an emergency message and your location to up to four other people.
You can get the BEAM button now. It’s $99 and you’ll contribute $3 to a charity when you buy. It’s expensive sure, but maybe you’d rather draw your own artwork than try to find an elusive button that expresses your exact thoughts. It’s sure to get cheaper in the future. We hope so anyway.
