My New Favorite Product

Pebble Technology in California has developed a watch using the new Kickstarter funding platform to raise over $10 Million by 68,929 backers. KickStarter is a direct offshoot of the JOBS Act, which enables entrepreneurs access to money from non-accredited sources.

I find the Pebble watch fascinating because it is one of the first products to act as a portable display device enabling hands-free monitoring of information on your smartphone. It is an intelligent e-paper wristwatch that communicates via Bluetooth with Android and iPhone devices.

And beside the fact that it’s just a cool product, what’s also interesting is that the company is planning an SDK to further customize the product to meet user needs.

Just thought I'd share my latest gadget-lust. Let me know what yours is.
