Looks like this is pre-launch? Is there going to be a Kickstarter or anything? big +1 on the company name UPDATE: Evidently there was a TC article yesterday, that confirms there will be a Kickstarter:
"In the next few weeks, the team behind Aria is putting up two versions of its band on Kickstarter. The cheaper unit will be purpose-built for the Pebble Time. For $69, it will connect directly to the watch, cutting out the need for an independent battery or constant Bluetooth communication when in use. The other option will be aimed at developers, coming in at a more premium $169 price point. It’ll be a standalone unit with its own battery, and will slot on to any watch band. Deus Ex Technology (the startup behind Aria) founder Alfredo Belfiori says the draw for this model will be the SDK, which will let owners use the module with most Android Wear watches as well as integrate gesture controls into apps." And re: Apple Watch support: "While it’s unlikely that Aria will directly control the Apple Watch any time soon, the SDK is also compatible with iOS applications, so you could wear the band on your Apple Watch and use gestures to do things like change palettes in a drawing app on your iPhone or take a photo with a connected GoPro." ^^ as an Apple Watch owner/lover, would love to hear one of the makers chime in on this

, yes it's pre-launch! 1st of june on Kickstarter. Glad you like the company name :) Apple watch: we are developing a whole ecosystem of app and features in order to completely replace the touchscreen, however currently is impossible to do it with the iOS. We are working on it! Alfredo

Cool product - can't wait to back you on KickStarter ;) just in time for my bday
"Aria is a hands-free remote that recognizes your finger movements from the wrist. Aria takes advantage of a brand new set of sensors capable of detecting different finger tapping, flicking and other movements. You then decide which gesture will do what with our configuration app."
