TapRub / Smart Watch Band


TapRub is a smartwatch band, made with the very first priority of human actions. In the past, it required you to adjust the smartwatch with the help of your other hand. We make this possible by sensing the movement of your muscles, connected with your thumb and forefinger. According to this, it becomes possible to adjust your smartwatch without the other hand's help. Thus, TapRub is expected to be more widely used. Furthermore, TapRub also provides a liquid crystal display that you can see from any angle. TapRub connects all the electronic devices through Bluetooth. Without consciousness, you are reaping the benefits the efficiency from it.
