    External Electromagnet Sense Bracelet

    Inspired by those implanting neodymium magnets into their fingers to gain an additional electromagnetic sense (http://gizmodo.com/5895555/i-have-a-magnet-implant-in-my-finger), the device would allow users to sense an electromagnetic field without body modification.

    The device would work by detecting electromagnetic radiations (http://www.circuitstoday.com/electromagneti-field-sensor-circuit) and vary a small vibration motor (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/8449). The device would be built on the White Flex and embedded into a canvas covered slap bracelet (http://www.orientaltrading.com/bright-color-silicone-slap-bracelets-a2-24_2486-12-1.fltr?Ntt=slap%20bracelets) to keep everything contained. A small lithium ion battery would also be embedded in the bracelet for power.

    Wearable Wrist Arduino

    For a device that is more extensible, a simple arduino board could be built on the White Flex and attached to a silicone slap bracelet (http://www.orientaltrading.com/bright-color-silicone-slap-bracelets-a2-24_2486-12-1.fltr?Ntt=slap%20bracelets). It would be powered using a small lithium ion battery like the above idea that would be attached in the center bracelet between the outer circuit and the slap bracelet. Running along the sides of the bralet would be a line of solderable IO pins from the arduino. This device would be a perfect introduction to a different type of wearable electronics and could be used for notifications, adding extra senses like electromagnetic or uv light, or just a simple watch.

No public wish lists :(
