Artist, philanthropist, now Tech Geek?…Very Impressive
Will.i.am is a man of many talents, he’s a genius artist who creates stunning music, a designer and now he’s an inventor who’s inspiring the next generation.
The former Black Eyed Peas front man launched special editions of the recently announced ‘PULS smart cuff‘ during the 4 day Wired Event which ended on Friday in London. The singer developed the device in conjunction with world-renowned architect Zaha Hadid who joined him in London for the launch.
Speaking to a conference hall packed with tech buffs, Will.i.am told experts at the packed conference why he created the device because he felt there was room in the market for wearable tech that did more than just look good as a fashion accessory. By combining two unlikely partners- Fashion and Technology to create a movement: Fashionology he called it.
The PULS can make call, send messages, has Wifi, Bluetooth, GPS and a 16GB memory. You can also access your social media accounts and stream music from the device.
The singer also revealed (despite being told not to) that The Puls will be going on sale in November from O2.
