Google Glass is a pretty decent gadget. While it can be a game changer, Google still needs to make it more fashion-friendly. Google Glass won’t be the only product of its type though. In fact, Icis is better looking while offering similar features. Icis converts existing smartphone apps to widgets that you will see in front of you. This is essentially a smart accessory for your smartphone.
Icis is a Bluetooth accessory with its own app, called SocialFlo, that lets you select which apps appear on your dashboard. The BOLD version will have a microphone, gyroscope, accelerometer, camera, and high resolution display. The battery life will last up to 6 hours. You can use this to keep up with notifications from your phone, like tweets, texts, and turn by turn directions. The product is on Indiegogo for crowdfunding.
Speaking of cool wearable devices, Cuff happens to be a smart jewelry that helps you stay connected with people that matter to you. You wear the device and press it when you want your loved ones to know your location to help you out. The Cuff app lets you receive alerts from your loved ones, locate them, and get all the information you need to help them out.
Cuff is iOS-compatible. It vibrates when anyone with you in their circle presses their Cuff. When you are not wearing your Cuff, alerts go to your phone. The battery life lasts for up to a year. The device is water resistant. You can order one for as low as $50.
