Gemio is a smart friendship bracelet that encourages users to socialize with friends in-person.
Think of a wearable band that not only gives you fitness and other bits of data, but also light effects and animations to help users communicate. The bracelets change their behavior based on friends that are within proximity and what they’re doing (gesture recognition) or even what they’re wearing (color sensing).
This is a fully customizable bracelet that is different from any other wearable you have tried.
The developers of Gemio aim to make this "your" wearable as you can make it do what you want.
Imagine getting an alert when your favorite football team scores a touchdown! Have it light up when other Gemio friends are near. Change the lighting displays to match your mood.
