Your New Hook Up Hero
Attention party people: The future is here! This year at Microsoft’s Design Expo, a new wristband was introduced called Vive. Although this wristband is only a prototype, it gives singles and couples around the world a lot to look forward to.
The Vive is a smart wristband that keeps track of how drunk you are, and lets your friends know when you are in the middle of some stranger danger and may be in need of some saving. The simple looking wristband is actually the smartest thing you’ve ever encountered. It uses micro-sensors to track your body’s intoxication level as well as your dehydration level. It’s like a breathalyzer that wants to help you survive the night and not screw you over. On top of everything, you can also sync social media profiles to your Vive, which lets you connect with your friends and keep track of new people you meet.
These wristbands would be so essential for bar crawls, concerts and out-of-hand house parties. Throughout the night, the Vive vibrates randomly to check on you. If you squeeze the band it tells the device you are safe and having the time of your life. But if you are too drunk and you fail to acknowledge the vibration, it assumes you are unconscious or in danger. If this occurs, the Vive sends vibrations to your friends so they know to check on you.
The Vive is your new guardian angel and wing woman all in one. If you’re single, this is a future must have. Whether you’re out with your friends or on a date, this handy device will help you make sure you do not get yourself in a sticky situation at the end of the night. All those nights of forgetting who you hooked up with will be in the past. Since you get to sync with people, you can easily keep in touch with the hottie at the club and Facebook creep. Or worst case scenario, you find-out mister tall, dark and handsome was actually tall, weird and hairy. At least now you would know who not to call back, and you can convince yourself the lack of lighting tricked you. The Vive is like your sober friend that follows you throughout the night, but its better because it isn’t killing your vibe.
For those in relationships, the Vive can still be super useful. I have a boyfriend, but I’m not dead. I still love going out with friends and living it up on the weekend. With Vive on my wrist, I can have the time of my life and make sure I don’t have any regrets. Plus, I can keep track of my all my single friends so we can end up in the same cab at the end of the night.
This device isn’t even on the market yet, but it’s already on my Christmas wish-list. With this crazy, dangerous world we live in, keeping track of friends and dates is so essential, especially when everything gets tipsy turvy. So take that shot to the head, but know you’re limit so you can ensure only good vibes for the night.
