The Rufus Cuff, an Android OS wearable, looks like something out of a science fiction TV show. It's possibly the only device out there that can't be categorized using regular criteria. The Cuff is a wearable Android tablet for your wrist, one that might feel more aesthetically at home on the U.S.S. Enterprise .
Initial funding for the project is from Indiegogo. The Cuff is more of a wrist communicator than a smartwatch or smartband, and its highlighted voice and video call feature makes sure to differentiate its designation.
Despite the fact that the wearable minitablet looks a bit encumbering, with a 3.2-inch touchscreen (available in Jet Black, Turbo Red, and White Out) and a thick, interchangeable silicone wristband that comes in eight different colors, the Rufus Cuff more or less includes the same slew of basic features as comparable devices like the Apple Watch: apps from music to fitness, and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectors for web access. And even though it's an Android, the wearable is also compatible with both Android and Apple iOS.
"It's not just a glorified notification center, we eventually see everyone ditching their phones," said Rufus Labs CEO and co-founder Gabe Grifoni in a recent interview. "This will replace the need for smartphones, wallets, watches, fitness trackers, everything." The device is available for pre-order here at an early-adopter price of $250.
