Hip hopper Will.i.am creates his own smart wristband that works as smartphone
When every other consumer electronics manufacturer is creating wearable fitness bracelets and smartwatches, an American hip hop singer Will.i.am (from Black Eyed Peas group) has developed his own voice-controlled wristband, which can replace the bulky smartphone in your pocket.
Will.i.am has developed a smart wristband called Puls (pronounced Pulse), which has a voice assistant called Aneeda built-in (Siri rival), which allow the user to dictate commands to the cuff-like device.
The smart wristband can make calls, send SMS messages, and even check Facebook and Twitter feeds for you. The wearable device also functions as a music player.
Interestingly, the Puls doesn’t need to be hocked up with a smartphone, instead the smart band can connect to the wireless network and work as a standalone smartphone.
The Puls has five hours of battery life, and is expected to ship for Christmas. There is no word on the price yet. Check the video below.
