Object find: techy trinkets

Elemoon is a new type of wearable technology that values aesthetics​ equally as much as overall functionality. Naturally, this kind of product is targeted at more fashion conscious consumers.

The bracelet uses bluetooth to connect to the owner's phone. Through this, Elemoon can send custom alerts so the user knows whether a call is too important to miss or if they can let it go to voicemail. 

Elemoon can even help you find your phone when you lose it. All you have to do is give the bracelet a rub and the bluetooth and motion sensors will set the phone off. 

Elemoon also incorporates 75 individual LED lights. These can be easily customised to display words and symbols. Users even have the option of colour matching the LEDs to a photo they have taken on their phone, say of the colours in an outfit, by using a special app. 

The New York based team behind Elemoon are funding the project through a Kickstarter campaign which closes on September 26.
