“The passion for fashion runs in the family”: Interview with Zoli Kovács, the founder of L!BER8 Technology

We recently asked Zoli Kovács, the Founder of L!BER8 Technology, about the development of ‘tago arc’, their a high-fashion ‘E Ink’ bracelet. This nifty piece of tech has endless display possibilities and employs cutting edge technologies, allowing users the freedom to expressing themselves, always matching their mood and outfit.

How did you come to develop this stylish, high-tech bracelet?

The passion for fashion runs in the family. My sister is a fashion designer and I am a huge accessory fan – bracelets, watches, sun glasses you name it. But I also like my gadgets and I like tinkering with electronics.

Where did the idea for ‘tago arc’ come from?

The idea was developed gradually overtime. We knew we wanted to further cordless and wireless technologies (#NOcord, #NOcharge and #NObutton).

We feel that this gadget is easy to relate to for our consumers and we would like to use tago arc as a stepping stone for other accessories and gadgets with our signature #NObutton, #NOcord, #NOcharge technologies in the same high fashion, offering a premium quality philosophy.

There are so many different wearables and smart gadgets on the market. Why is tago arc different?

Observing recent events in the industry, I believe that wearable technologies have reached an impasse, and the barrier seems to be consumer convenience when it comes to interacting with and recharging ones gadgets. There is a bit of a struggle or challenge between consumer experience, and battery life versus smarter technologies. We believe that what our consumers and what the market needs is not another smart gadget but a premium quality accessory that provides a smoother user experience and liberates our users from the stress and inconvenience of dying batteries, cords, bluetooth, syncing the devices and charging.

We believe that the tago arc, and its quality, design and diverse functionality, speaks for itself, and that people will fall in love with it for its chic simplicity and elegance, and not for having an added software functionality or smart extension.

Where can I get my hands on the tago arc?

We are launching the commercial retail version of tago arc via an Indiegogo campaign on the 11 February. We are looking for beta testers and artists to create wonderful designs for the display and we are turning to the community to let us know what they think about our idea and to engage them actively in the development of this 21st century jewellery.
