This week’s curio: NEX Band connected charm bracelet
The NEX Band is a modular wearable device targeted at young folk. Users customize their NEX by snapping-on and programming up to five “mods” able to track location, blink when they receive a text, or indicate proximity close to another NEX. The company behind the charm band foresees unique gaming and social applications based on the exchange and customization of users’ mods. There’s even the potential for brands, musicians, and movies to create their own compatible snap-ons.
This week’s question:
What other jewelry pieces should be reimagined as wearable devices?
The Weekly Curio is a small morsel of design to whet your curiosity and stimulate wonder. Inspired by the intellectually striking objects found in Enlightenment-era Wunderkammern, a new intriguing trinket or beguiling bibelot will be published each week paired with a thought-provoking question.
