The Uno Noteband is the first ever wearable to make use of Spritz, a technology that aims to increase your reading speed by showing individual words in very quick succession. The wristband can be connected via Bluetooth to Android and iOS devices and, aside from notifications, also offers fitness tracking features and long battery life.

The Noteband displays calls, emails, calendar reminders, social media activity and more. However, by flashing individual words courtesy Spritz, the device increases reading speed to up to 600 words a minute.

The Uno Noteband is currently the subject of an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign; a pledge of just $59 will get you set up with one unit around April 2015 if the campaign is successful. This represents significant savings on the estimated final price of $129. The Indiegogo campaign has passed 30% of its fundraising goal after just one day, making it likely that this awesome product will indeed reach market.
