Trinity / Smart Prayer Beads


500 million Buddhist in the world always do one same spiritual practice every day, and that is meditation. The traditional tool prayer bead is the most common counting device used in meditation, But it is a little bit old-fashioned in the modern society and does not have any other digital smart features that could enhance the spiritual practice. Trinity is designed for modern Buddhist. It gives them the same feeling of pull a string of traditional beads while adding much more portability. It also integrates counting and tracking features for a better experience.
