Hicon Smart bracelet with social network support

It would seem as though the world has gone crazy for wearables because not only do we have fitness bands and smartwatches, but there is something completely different on the horizon, but only if it gets funding. That’s right, this is an Indiegogo campaign for a device known as a Hicon Smart bracelet, which offers support for a number of social networks.

We presume that the people behind this bracelet wish to turn this into the next craze, and if it reaches its funding target, then that will be a very good sign for the start-up.

While the idea behind this bracelet is sound, its design is not because it is clumsily large and once you have placed the buttons in the holes it looks like something you would have had when you were very young, although this could appeal to young teenage girls.

This device is easily explained in the video below, but it is basically a bracelet with square holes, that are filled with charms. Each of these charms represents something different, such as Facebook, Twitter or an SMS.

Each time you get a notification, text message or something else the button flashes to inform you. Connecting to your mobile device via Bluetooth 4.0 does this.

Hicon has said that the bracelet will be compatible with Android, iOS and in time Windows Phone.

There are 42 days left to reach a goal of $60,000 and so far just $1,394 has been reached. If you would like to make a pledge, then please visit Indiegogo.
