The Rufus Cuff is an overgrown smartwatch
We use our phones to communicate with the world at large. Friends, family, and coworkers that are far away can talk to us with crystal clarity. If your phone has a front-facing camera, you can even see them through video chat. We’re already glued to these devices, and have phantom buzzes when we think our phone is going off, only because we’re always expecting an incoming message or alert.
Smartwatches have been trying to become a ‘thing’ for some time now, and while they haven’t taken hold just yet, there are a myriad of options out there. For those who would rather have a wrist communicator on, there is the Rufus Cuff. This is about the size of your smartphone, and sadly costs about as much as well.
This is a wrist cuff that has a 3” capacitive touchscreen, runs off of Android Kit Kat, and sports a ~1000mAh battery. Not only will you be able to take calls, answers texts, emails, play games, and do video chat on it, but it can track your exercise, and play music as well. It can either work in tandem with your smartphone, or on it’s own. This costs $279+, and while it is a neat idea, it’s too big to be practical for any occasion. If you really like the wrist-mounted device idea, there are some really interesting options out there to make holsters for your phone.
