Rufus Cuff seems too big to be a wearable

We were well aware that the Galaxy Gear 2 wouldnt turn out to be so great and the warning bells had been ringing way before time for this one. But here is the Rufus Cuff and we think we might have to roll up on our absurdity sleeves for this one because a three-inch screen is just too large for a wrist band.

Although the features seem wuite impressive with a built-in mic, a camera, a speaker, web browser, voice control, GPS and full access to the Google Play store. With all these in place, the Rufus Cuff sounds exactly like a smartphone and it is actually close to being one. The large screen makes it look like a smartphone attached to the wrist. The Cuff can be used with both Android or iPhone and connects using the Bluetooth. Once connected, it can be used for mobile data, making calls and sending texts and along with this it is also featuring a full version of Google's mobile OS and can connect to a Wi-Fi if you dont have signals in the range or your phone is dead.

The gadget surely doesnt look like it's going to be practical but at this point it has reached over $150,000 of its $200,000 IndieGoGo goal and it still has a couple more days to go. If you are up for the Rufus Cuff and are ready to have it strapped onto your arm then you will have to spend $249.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
