Wearable devices are getting more and more versatile as years go by. Whether we use them to store information, listen to music, record sounds or simply have a handy clock or a thermometer in our pocket, these devices are a must in our everyday lives. Sometimes we stumble across some that have more than one function.
We are elated to find wearable devices that combine two or three of our favorite functions such as storage and music. Still, how powerful can such an object become? A new invention aims to prove that the answer is: very powerful. The Kiwi Move can be programmed to handle a multitude of tasks.
This new device wishes to expand the horizon of wearable sensors. It can be programmed to aid you with everyday tasks and has numerous sensors. The Kiwi Move holds an accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, barometer, thermometer and microphone. It can store up to 2 GB of data. Moreover, with Wi-fi and Bluetooth it can be connected to your smartphone or tablet.
What’s interesting about this handy, little device is that its functions are not presents. You can handle all of them as you wish and program them with simple “when/do” statements. If certain conditions are met, the Kiwi Move acts accordingly.
For example, a music note gesture tells the Kiwi Move to identify the title of the song playing on the background. The device can work as anything from game controller to manager of personal finances. It can even show you a particular diet and how you need to follow it.
Unfortunately for those interested, this device is not ready for mass production yet. It is aimed only at developers. The company wishes to see what uses developers could find for the Kiwi Move. Those interested to develop its uses further can pre-order it for $99. If it becomes available to the general public, would you buy the Kiwi Move?
