Leela Wrist-top Wearable

Overview

An Optimal Design original, Leela is a wearable touch screen device that is large enough to be easy to use while slim enough to stay out of the way. Leela is very clever, packing a world of information at your fingertips while leaving your hands free to do what you do best. Its compact design enables many different things and works well with a variety of devices and people, such as first responders, logistics and packaging personnel, office administrators and factory workers. Leela’s sleek profile and soft edges ensures it can move around tight spaces without getting caught or slowing anybody down, blending in perfectly wherever needed.

Challenge

Leela is a wholly new concept: with a curved display and lots of technology to pack inside a small device, Leela goes beyond minor adjustments of an existing smartphone. From sourcing the appropriate plastic OLED displays for a curved touch screen to designing the hardware architecture and component layout, Leela’s complexity reflects the building of such an innovative product through overcoming huge barriers.

Innovation

Adding a curved display to the users’ forearm, building a multifaceted, multiple-use device, and incorporating all the technology from a smartphone into one small-form factor: this is Optimal Design innovation at its best. A world’s-first, Leela incorporates all the handy features of existing forearm-worn products and packs them into a sleek, yet technologically-advanced device.
