Kiwi Wearables is wearable technology that can be clipped on or worn on the wrist. It works with both bluetooth and wi-fi. The device can interact with both your phone and connected devices within your home network. It has motion, temperature, magnetic and barometer sensors. The Kiwi Wearable also includes a microphone which listens to the environment around the users. The users can also use the microphone to issue commands. You can also issue commands using custom designed gestures. In the video on the website, the user writes an S in mid-air and brings up her Shazam app to identify the song playing over the loud-speaker. The device is not waterproof, but it is something that they are working on. The API is open to developers. The Kiwi Wearable will come in white, silver and black and should be shipping in July. It will be $125 plus shipping. I have to say I am really curious about this device and I am thinking about preordering one. I only hope that it works as advertise
