Sgnl Smart Strap turns your fingers into a Phone – The Sci-fi Gadget from the Future

by Karthik Iyer 2

Ever wondered how cool it would be to just touch your ear and talk. No need for any smartphones or fancy ‘Airpods‘ as a wireless solution. Yes, we have seen them in many movies and we have always wondered, will this ever become a reality? Well, now it looks like it has. A new gadget on Kickstarter is basically designed to make you live that dream. Kickstarter has always been an excellent platform for such amazing new concepts and this one is no exception.

This new gadget is called Sgnl. This will essentially let you make phone calls just by wearing a wristband and touching your ear with your fingers. Here, the fingers will act as the receiver. No, there are no speakers on the device itself. Instead of that, the audio is directed into your ear through vibrations that are sent through your body, into your wrist and up to the fingers touching your ear. A microphone is built into the band.

This project is coming from a startup called Innomdle Lab. It’s their first project and for the same, a Kickstarter project has been launched looking for $50,000. It is safe to say that they have already reached their target. Sgnl units are now selling for around $139. Not that expensive for the type of product which it is.

The band can be worn as a standalone wristband or can be used as watch strap, either of a smartwatch or an analog watch as it doesn’t need any kind of smartwatch connection. This is a nice idea as it makes it one less gadget to carry around as if all these existing products are not enough. It is expected that in future, this might be directly integrated into the smartwatch itself, but as of now this is what we have. Although the concept is quite cool but is it actually required?

Not really, but it is a good thing that we are getting to see some new interesting gadgets like these especially there is practically nothing new these days, apart from the same old upgraded smartphones. With that being said, if this is something which you are looking for, then do check the source link for the same. Stay tuned for more info on this.
