Controlled by a smartphone app, the bracelet’s flexible E Ink display can be continually re-customised with different digital patterns of the user’s choice to fit their clothes, other accessories, or friends’ clothes and accessories.


Plastic Logic’s technology met L!BER8’s requirement for a flexible, robust and long-lasting battery solution. The unique feature of Targo Arc is that the display reaches end-to-end from the metal rims of the bracelet, so the entire surface displays the chosen pattern.


Plastic Logic’s flexible E Ink displays only require small amounts of power which means that the operation of changing the image on the bracelet runs on a very low power design. The end-product has a wireless link to a smartphone app, and cannot be recharged; the battery it comes with is for the life of the product.


Tim Burne, CEO, Plastic Logic, commented: “Forward-thinking businesses such as L!BER8 are taking advantage of the huge opportunities that glass-free displays offer in terms of product innovation and differentiation. We helped them to tackle a number of design concerns in a way that meant no compromises to their vision had to be made.”


The L!BER8 and Plastic Logic collaboration can be seen in a video clip here, demonstrating how the bracelet looks and works.
