Snap Bracelet Concept
Snap, by Design Continuum, is a wrist-worn MP3 player controlled by simple hand gestures and audio feedback. By monitoring the movement of tendons in your wrist, the device "reads" the hand gestures that control its playback, and reports status through wireless earbuds. The player and earbuds communicate using your skin as a transmission medium, with no wires required, and no radio interference. Songs are loaded and managed with standard wi-fi.
Now, don't hold your breath: as the title of this post said, it's only a concept but it won a Bronze Award at IDEA.
