I'm sure I've been added to a spam filter after writing him something about elbows. Can't remember the details.

I don't think I would be interested in a band like that. The shape isn't appealing to me at all. I'd also imagine keeping the sensors in contact with the right parts of your wrist would be difficult. Having to spin it around to see who's actually calling or what time it is. Even if the screen used accelerometers/gyroscopes to figure out where up is an orient the all screen body to be read correctly I just can't see if being anything other than frustrating.

I suppose it does look floppy.

My idea was more of a "horizontal" display that ran a tad farther up your wrist, on a beefier band. You've seen them in sci fi movies.

Bigger display, a chance to add components.

Like rockets.

Look, if I'm going to make it bigger I want missiles like the Mandalorian so I can take out idiots while I'm out running or something.
