this wearable notepad keeps your last-minute memos handy

the idea for ‘wemo’ (or ‘wearable memo’) takes inspiration from nurses, who frequently write important notations and reminders on their hands. the team at japanese design studio kenma found that there was a significant need for the design of a wearable that could also serve as an impromptu notepad. ‘wemo’ was developed not only for those the medical field, but also people who work across a wide range of front line sites, such as disaster areas, agricultural production sites, manufacturing centers, construction sites, and more.

kenma designed ‘wemo’ so that notes can be written on with a permanent marker, and later be erased by rubbing with a finger or using an eraser. it can be used as many times as as the user needs, and your notes stay secure and handy, even when wet. users can also wash their hands and work underwater while wearing it. while the product is undoubtedly useful for people working in urgent conditions, it can also be useful for those who have difficultly remembering, and can aid people who suffer from dementia.
