"The Internet of Things" Wristband

First of all, you might be asking "What is the 'Internet of things'?"

As described in the article cited here, it's the concept of a world full of connected devices controlled through a consumer-friendly hub, like a smartphone app.

 At the International CES, the Internet of Things Hits Home. (The New York Times, 1/4/2015)
In some cases, companies have joined in head-scratching collaborations, building devices that do not show an obvious need for an Internet connection, but that may find consumer interest anyway. For example, two separate wristbands on display — the Reemo and the Myo — will let their wearers control video games, phones and connected devices in the home using arm waves and gestures.

Unfortunately, neither the Reemo nor Myo can conjure up a special friend.

And the Reemo guy look like he really needs some company.
