The SXSW Interactive Experiences are Taking Things Up a Notch

The Lightwave wristband is taking a different approach to wearable tech than many of its counterparts at SXSW interactive this year. Rather than focusing on fitness and social media, it is tackling the world of music and party management.

The Lightwave wristband looks to create a more interesting and exciting live music experience by relaying the information of the crowd to the performers and there 's no better place to do it than SXSW interactive. The wristband is very thorough in its gathering of information as well by gathering things like temperature, audio levels and even different types of movement.

By doing this, it gives the performer a sort of cheat sheet that gives them the tools to alter and cater their performance -- even halfway through. The way it will be distributed is in the same way 3D glasses are distributed -- used for the performance, returned, recycled and used again for the next group.
