LaMetric is a new concept of smart display that, when connected to an RSS feed, can show everything from Facebook fans to the weather. The clear display makes it noticeable to most people walking by, so having a businesses' FB fan number on display could encourage customers to add to that number since it's so apparent.
Apparently according to the developers, the Nike FuelBand served as a base for the design, as they used the interface and sleek look to come up with the final product for LaMetric. While it doesn't look like the FuelBand in shape, the darker coloring and screen is similar. Although the pixels make it resemble an old-school gaming system, they are very clear to read, which is ideal for ensuring customers see certain information.
