Reemo is a "wrist worn mouse" that allows users to make commands with specific gestures.

Imagine having the ability to shut off your alarm clock by simply pointing your hand at it and making a “down” gesture. Imagine being able to do the same with the lights in your room, the TV, or even your computer.

A startup called Playtabase has developed a wearable device that lets people do just that.

Reemo is a wrist band that helps users control their environment through different gestures. The device, dubbed by the makers as a “wrist worn mouse,” works by interpreting movement as specific gestures and associating them with certain commands, then transmitting these commands to the host system via Bluetooth. The software system then communicates these commands to the electronics that are linked to it.
