Pins Collective launches wearable digital pins that display uploaded images and gifs, which can instantly sync with in-app designs.
The digital e-ink pins can be attached to users’ clothes, or act as a necklace pendant. Users can create custom designs or moving gifs in the Pins Collective app, which can then be instantly uploaded onto the pin. The low-power LCD display is semi-backlit, providing clear images in a range of light. The app will have some degree of open-source capability, enabling users to integrate their own features, or sync with other apps, so brands and artists are can open up their own stores for curated designs. Pins Collective are currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter with an estimated launch date of early 2017.
Could advertising be pushed to wearables?
