We had a busy time at the Innovate 2016 exhibition in Manchester last week, where our products were on display alongside the best of British innovation.
As well as our exhibition showcasing our location triggered Bluetooth Beacon games and apps, Blispa provided the Innovate 2016 event app – a beacon triggered comprehensive guide to the event. We re-purposed our Finder wristbands to act as beacons promoting the other innovators in the exhibition, so we were on every exhibitors’ wrist as well.
On our exhibition stand we presented our event app and beacon management platform, together with our Finder wristbands. We were delighted to be a finalist in the Design in Innovation award, which considered how we had designed our finder wristbands to meet the often conflicting demands of different users. As ever with wearable devices there are tensions between ease of use, size of battery, comfort, style, security, ease and cost of manufacture to be considered. Our registered design solution results in every wristband being unique and appropriate for a range of applications from festivals and events through to healthcare and independent living.
