Would you pay $260 for an e-ink bracelet that could display images that you uploaded yourself? What if I told you that that it did not even have to be plugged in to be recharged? Tago is hoping that you answered yes to both questions.
The Tago Arc is an E Ink fashion accessory that can be customized to look exactly as the user desires, and never needs to be charged. It draws all the required power from the smartphone via the NFC connection during the image transfer. The companion app for Android and iOS will allow users to really customize the overall look and be able to upload a single image or a mosaic.
The bracelet itself will be available with three different trim finishes: silver, gold, and matte black. You’ll need to pledge $199 on Indiegogo to get the “real early bird” version, which will begin shipping to backers this upcoming December and the final retail version will cost $260
