16 Futuristic LED Bracelet Designs
Since their first introduction a few years ago, LED bracelets have gone far beyond a party gear to impress your fellow club hoppers. With talent and imagination, scientists as well as designers around the world are working to turn LED bracelets from flashing fashionable wear into multi-functional gadgets, ranging from simple faceless watches to complicated camera-phone-MP3 players. Whether or not you are a sci-fi movie fan, you will find at least one of those LED bracelets fancy. Some of them are available in the market already, but most of them are still concepts, meaning they might never reach the light of being released. But it does not hurt to dream, does it?
Sony Nextep Computer is the boldest step to bring fictional gadgets closer to reality. Designed to be worn as a bracelet, this wristband computer concept has a flexible OLED touchscreen, holographic projector (for screen), pull-out extra keyboard panels, and social networking compatibility. As if it is not wonderful enough, the design even comes in different stylish colors, including mysterious black, chic green, and baby pink. Unfortunately, you will have to wait until 2020 to be able to buy the product.

This device has a touchscreen OLED display with a tactile keypad and memory alloy articulation, offering the user convenience when riding a mountain bike or surfing the sea.

ASUS also introduces something cool. This OLED Smartphone Bracelet, dubbed as Waveface Ultra, does not only possess the full power of any smartphone today, but also the stunning look that any fashion-conscious techie would die to have.

Gucci is not alone in the process of bringing technology to the fashion world or the other way around. Diesel also created a collection of LED watches for men in the form of bracelets. Each product features a stainless steel case with mirror electroplating, and a scrolling digital display with red LED numbers.
Orbit Metal Bracelet
This futuristic bracelet watch is surely meant for futuristic people, assuming that people in the future are smarter than us. This Orbit Metal Bracelet from Tokyoflash Watches uses a collection of highly imaginative numbers (which I doubt if anyone other than its very own creator can understand) to display time. Hours are shown around the interface whereas minutes are displayed at the center with LEDs hidden in the layout.
Tokyoflash LED Bracelet Watch
Whether you say this LED bracelet can or cannot tell time, you are right. Even though its LED illuminated screen is supposed to show hours and minutes, how to read it remains a mystery. It was designed by Tokyoflash.
Tokyoflash Shinshoku LED Watch
Made of stainless steel that wraps around your wrist with a matrix of punched out holes, Shinshoku LED Watch is another innovative design from Tokyoflash. And just as your guess, this watch uses an equally complicated system to tell time. The time is indicated by the multi-color 29 super bright LED’s that shine through holes in the metal mesh wristband. .
Dot LED Bracelet Watch
Even though it might not look as polished as the Tokyoflash bracelet watch above, this Dot LED Bracelet Watch is for sure much more practical with time shown in numbers that humans can understand. It was designed by Damian Kozlik from Poland .
Madokadoke Hidden LED Watch Bracelet
Madokadoke Bracelet LED Watch was created by Ross McBride at IDEA International as an example of “undoing conventional concepts”. Its main appeal is the hidden LED watch. Time is only shown when a button is clicked. This stylish bracelet comes in different colors, suitable for both party and office wear.
Japanese Faceless Watch
Faceless Watch is a Japanese concept for minimalism. Unfortunately, this product is minimalist in function, not really in shape. Hironao Tsuboi and Japanese Studio 100% have collaborated to create a watch without face which makes it look exactly like a bracelet. The Faceless Watch has LED situated between the links within the bracelet, it simply glows in order to reveal time in numbers.
