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.
