LG says 'no' to all those boring wearables... with the stylus bracelet

In the Year of the Wearable, you will never guess what LG has in store for us, just in time for the summer fashion show. How about a colorful bracelet, that turns into a stylus for your phablet of choice..?

Good thing Slap Bracelets died in the '90s.

It looks bigger than the G Pro 2. People will definitely notice you.

I get the strong feeling we're being trolled.

Tell me what this stylus can do on a phone that my five-dollars-a-dozen stylus I got from ebay cannot do. XD

It is there, in the Second paragraph you can see that your five-dollars-a-dozen stylus does the same as this piece of crap...

That's not what I asked for, man. But well, maybe it is not any better after all. xD

There's a fine line between creative and crazy...this is crazy.

i actually think this is a useful concept if the stylus is pressure sensitive like Samsung S pen and also works a fitness tracker. athough the design can be improved
17. pwnarena (Posts: 958; Member since: 15 Feb 2013)
shouldn't the display be the pressure-senstive one? how could a non-powered stylus make any pressure sensitivity manifest anything to the smartphone?
19. NexusX (Posts: 160; Member since: 16 May 2013)
I suppose they'd have to make a phone that supports it.

Stylus are pressure sensitive dude.. not phones.
Samsung note 2 and 3's s pen has 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity !
I read the working of spen somewhere.
Look ontthe internet .. you'll understand. :)

haha. that's lame.
it's like some prototype that will not be approved or some china-made toy exported to third world countries.

This is just a item of swag we are giving out for free to the reps in stores. I'm not seeing them as an item for sale and don't think LG would do such a thing. I work for LG as a product specialist.

maybe lg should hire someone else who can think outside of the box

This is like something you would get on Thinkgeek, but not cool or useful. As an alternative use, this could be good for checking tonsils or a sore throat, its slogan can be "Say Ahhhh"

Sorry to disappoint you all, but this project has already been scrapped. Apparently the 80's phoned them and demanded their bracelet back.

If I buy this does it come with a free GPad. I figured it was the only way LG could sell them. LOL.

The problem I see with this, is convincing female users to get on board, since this is obviously not going to work for males.
