The Allerta InPulse is a wrist worn mobile phone accessory that will display alerts and messages as they arrive to your phone without you needing to take the handset out of your pocket or bag. Right now it’s all very vapourware, with vague promises and specifications flickering across the Web. The inventor, Eric Migicovsky (pictured below) came up with the idea while at the University of Waterloo in Canada, and has been working on commercialising the thing since the tail end of last year.
Original images of the product look a lot clunkier than the latest from Crackberry.com, but the good news is the fact that the product should work with Blackberry, Nokia and Android handsets via BlueTooth, which will be useful indeed if it works as advertised.
We feel for anyone who has ever missed an important call because they didn’t realize their phone was ringing. We’re paranoid about dropping our phones when we’re on the move, and we hate when accidents happen because a driver was fumbling to see what the ringing was all about. We set out to create a device that could put a stop to these situations. Instead of having to grab your phone out of your pocket every time it vibrates, use our technology and rest assured that you’ll be alerted when an important call or message arrives.
