The Blu Could Be the World’s First Wearable Smartphone

by Martin 6

Wearable or wrist-mounted smartphones have always been the stuff of sci-fi, movies, and video games but the people behind the Blu are trying to change that and turn fiction into reality.

blu-flexible-smartphone-01The Blu is a project on IndieGogo for a flexible wrist-mounted smartwatch. Its main feature is a flexible display and body that can be bent to form a wrist-worn bracelet. According to the designers, it uses a Flexible Organic Light Emitting Diode (F-OLED) display which has the ability to roll into a 5.5-inch circumference circle as well as a flexible circuit board and a flexible Flex-ion battery. The display will be protected by Corning Willow Glass which is a flexible version of the company’s Gorilla glass.

It supposedly will also be equipped with a 13-megapixel camera, a nano-SIM port, and an invisible speaker. According to the designers, they’ve developed a Gesture Oriented User Interface (GOUI) that tracks the orientation of the wrist to adjust the position of the device’s interface to keep it aligned with the user’s view.

The project is currently seeking funding of $1 million with, as of this writing, 14 days left to complete funding. Funding is currently at a little over $93,000 so the team behind Blu are going to need a lot of help to reach their goal in half a month’s time.

      WHY NOT ?!
      you must NOT be fun at parties !

  • Muhammad Yasir

    well YES!
    but the fact the blu is US exclusive and doesnt cater to other countries is a big sucker !

  • fggdhdj

    not in this form, it needs to pop out and twist like an assasins creed knive with pivot at end

    if battery is big enough and specs for multitasking then yes, price and quality also 🙂

    Isn’t this essentially the Samsung galaxy gear s? I don’t know how possible it would be for this finding to make this phone, and wouldn’t they bed need than a million dollars to do so?

    Yeah Muhammad, I hate that “US Region Only”shit. But on the other hand I think asking a million dollars is a little far fetched. They show only a small part of the actual thing because they still need to develop that. This makes the hole product even more doubtful. It’s not that I don’t believe in there product but I like to pledge for products that a already developed to a certain point… And if you have to wait for another year then I don’t want a warm wrist product with that SD 810 😛 At least change that to an X20 or a 820 😉
