TapTap: a wristband that creates a private world for lovebirds

We know most wearables by now. There are activity trackers, smartwatches, wristbands that provide notifications, you name it. This makes it pretty difficult to come up with something new.

13:56 wristband lets you operate your smartphone by moving your arm

I have often said it — it is possible to take the development of wearables too far. However, contrary to the Embrace+, the 13:56 wristband offers more potential than people initially thought. But its creators have made a few design choices that are likely to prohibit large-scale success. Although the 13:56 wristband features a simple […]

Naturally, when we attended the IFA in Berlin we were eager to check whether the device lived up to the hype. What is immediately striking is the […]

The slim bracelet is totally in line with the current trend of wearables, but I had my reasons for initially deciding not to write about it last week. Meanwhile, its makers have managed to raise more than three times the […]
