Wearable Device Promises To Keep A Body Focused

With all the things available these days, mostly electronic devices, that can distract a person, it stands to reason someone would invent another piece of electronic technology to keep one focused on singular tasks, i.e., work. That’s what has happened as a result of FokusLabs partnering with Device Solutions to conceive, design, and develop RE-vibe wearables. According to the partners, RE-vibe wearables are the world’s first anti-distraction wearables for kids and adults including those with autism and ADHD. Pictured below are the watch and wristband versions of the RE-vibe wearables.

The devices employ a unique algorithm developed by FokusLabs CEO, Rich Brancaccio. Essentially, the device delivers vibrations of various levels to alert the wearer to stay on task or to get back on task after a set break period. There are also some LEDs placed behind the semi-transparent plastic enclosure that tell the wearer when to take a break and to indicate when the battery level is low. Notably, the algorithm is designed to make sure that the wearer doesn't get accustomed to the reminders and begin to ignore them.

RE-vibe devices weigh less than 0.5 oz. and specify a 7+ day battery life on a single charge.  They come with three different anti-distraction levels plus a homework mode. Other features include one-touch programming and a button-less design for ease of use.

FokusLabs builds RE-vibe units in the USA.  A health-conscious decision, the wristband lining is made from OEKO-TEX certified organic cotton and the enclosure is made of rugged, food-grade plastic free of BPA/BPS, lead, and phthalates.

For keeping the distracted tracted, RE-vibe may lack the joys of a nagging office manager or spouse, but seems to garnering significant popularity. With prototypes developed by the Device Solutions design team, FokusLabs launched a fund raising effort on Kickstarter on March 3, 2015 and successfully funded above and beyond the goal of $25,000 by March 27, 2015.  More than 180 backers from around the country supported the funding and all have now received their shipments from FokusLabs.
