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.
