This device, Ditto, has no LCD display, no buttons and no lights. It weighs only 8 grams. All it does is to vibrate when something important is happening.
The creator, Bob Olodort from simple matters, former consulting designer for Samsung is releasing his first product, Ditto, which has nothing except a Bluetooth connection and a powerful vibrating motor.
For $29, Ditto serves as a remote vibrating notification device for your phone. Users can pair it up with their phone through a app and set whatever you consider that is important. Example like a call from your boss or a meeting in the afternoon.
Ditto will then vibrate to alert you when the events are triggered. Different vibration patterns can be even set for different set of occasions or notifications. Ditto can even remind you not to misplace your phone. When you are walking out of range from your phone, Ditto will vibrate when the Bluetooth connection is out of range.
Ditto is powered by a replaceable watch battery which can last about 4 to 6 months. It is completely waterproof which allows it to be used in a shower or a swim.
Ditto will probably be very useful for people who keep their phones in bags or purses where they can easily miss out notifications or calls. For the ladies, Ditto comes with a clip which allow it to be clipped on a bra strap which will be completely invisible.
Simple Matters is currently running a Kickstarter fundraiser for Ditto, which is about halfway toward its $100,000 goal. The main reason for this kickstarter project is to raise awareness as Simple matters has raised about $1 million in capital from private investors.
The company is based in Santa Monica, California but Ditto will be manufactured in China and is set to release in late January or early February.
