By now you’ve probably seen the Stuhring Watch, a wearable that uses a laser to scan your eyes for the “signs of the times”.
This is not a new technology, but the company behind it is trying to take it a step further and integrate it into a smartwatch.
Stuhrings watch is being made by the Swiss watch manufacturer Luminox.
The company, which is also known for its watch band, is already a major player in wearable technology, including the Wearable Infotainment Hub, a Bluetooth speaker for smartwatches.
Luminox is also a supplier to a few other brands like Fossil, the Fitbit, and Pebble.
And they’re working on a new watch with a laser sensor that uses an ultrasonic signal to identify human faces, the Stuyfte Stuhrer.
Luminax says that it has been working on the project for five years and has raised $40 million in funding from investors.
“Stuhring watches are a new form of digital entertainment, bringing the immediacy of a smart watch to our everyday lives,” said Luminox CEO, Patrick Stuhrs.
“It is our goal to combine our passion for the design of our watches with the power of technology to bring a new dimension to our technology.”
Luminox has already made some impressive smartwars like the Lumis WearWatch and the Luminux WearWatch 3, and has plans for Stuhrers watch as well.
The watch is going to have a heart rate sensor, an LED light, a heart-rate monitor, and a gyroscope that detects changes in your body’s internal motion.
It also includes a motion sensor to track your step count, which will track your steps and your distance, and track your speed over time.
This is all going to be integrated into the Stufle app, which has been created for the Stuzhring Watch.
The Stuh Ringers watch will be available to preorder in October 2018.
