WristBoom Is A Bluetooth Speaker You Wear On Your Wrist

WristBoom-200515

So… this exists. It’s a Bluetooth speaker, and it sits on your wrist. You can either stream music to it, or take calls. But you can’t make any because there’s only one button, and all it does is turn the device on and off, and accept incoming calls. It’s big. It’s bulky. And you’d be right in asking who in their right mind would ever want one. But Chris Davies from Slashgear makes a good point: what about grandmothers? We like to evaluate products from our own standpoints where a big, bulky boombox-on-a-wrist is stupid, but for someone with limited mobility, for whom the phone that’s ringing in the adjacent room is probably too long a trek to bother with, well, it makes a little more sense. Considering it’s $20, and probably easier to use than a pair of scissors, the WristBoom seems like just the kind of thing you’d get for someone like grandma. That’s of course if it ever does see the light of day, which seems unlikely considering their crowdfunding campaign appears dead in the water for now. Still, there are 10 days left, and you never know what can happen in that span of time.
