Smart Bands/Watches look out, Keychains are also getting smarter
These days, smart bands and smart watches are all the rage. But Dr. Ezzat Bakhoum, a professor of Electrical Engineering at University of Florida, seems uninterested with this entire wearable fad and thinks that consumers are better off using his invention, the Smart Keychain.
The Smart Keychain, which can be seen at Indiegogo, is a multi-purpose accessory that pairs to a user’s device via Bluetooth. It can alert users about upcoming Calendar events, notify them about new email, as well as help them find their keys through a free companion app.
Furthermore, the Smart Keychain also doubles as a storage device with its built-in flash-based memory module. Consumers can choose from three (8, 16 and 32) storage capacities.
Here’s a short video that showcases the Smart Keychain in action:
If the team reach their USD300,000 target by 21st of August of this year, the Smart Keychain will also get Health/Fitness tracker function which measures the distance that users travelled and how much calories the user burnt in doing so.
Interested parties can find out more information about the Smart Keychain by heading over to its Indiegogo campaign page found on the source link below.
