Custom silicon wristbands are new personalized accessories that offer a whole lot of other functions, and even promise more possible uses. Currently, not only are they used as customizable fashion products that are worn for promotion of various causes and expression of beliefs, but also as effective pollutant indicators.
Due to the porous qualities of the silicone rubber or the material used to make the product, pollutants in the air tend to be absorbed easily. This could then be tested to identify and measure the harmful elements present in the surroundings. The pollutants get into the pores of the wristbands, so they wouldn't be easily washed away when the band gets in contact with water. This makes it a good collector of substances because which gives accurate data.
Aside from being an indicator of toxic substances, the custom silicon wristband could be used as an alternative for tickets made of paper. Due to the incidents of tickets being counterfeited or people crashing into events without paying, some organizers thought of using the custom silicon wristbands as an innovative replacement for paper tickets. Since the details of the wristband are dictated by the consumer, those who plan to make fake ones would have a hard time imitating a unique design. What's more is that the sentimental event-goer could easily preserve the wristband as a form of remembrance, unlike the conventional ticket which easily gets torn and decomposed. The attendees of the event just need to wear one around their wrists and present them to the personnel at the entrance of the venue and they would be given access without any fuss.
There are also wristbands which perform technical functions due to the technology embedded in its rubber form. These wristbands could be used in holding tracking devices so that they could be worn and secured properly. The wristband should be worn by children so that their parents could easily find them if they get lost. The custom silicon wristbands could also be styled in a way that would allow it to serve as a holder for small gadgets such as iPods, MP3 players and pedometers. In this way, the users could fasten their gadgets onto the wristband for easier access and for style purposes.
Technology nowadays has provided modern means of banking and processes of payment that would be considered unconventional ten years before. It is possible that in the future, chips that could store banking and credit information would be created and these could be embedded in these wristbands as well. All it takes is a quick scan of the chip in the wristband in order to make a transaction in the bank or in order to make purchases in, let's say, a modern mall.
Also, instead of banking information, details about the identity of a person could also be placed in the tiny chip and a person could wear it in order to gain access to an establishment such as a university or an office. In this way, people can avoid infuriating incidents of losing ID's because everything would just be kept in the wristband, which could be worn all the time, even while bathing. The water-resistant coating provided by the silicone rubber would prevent the chip from getting wet, even while swimming.
Wearing custom silicon wristbands is definitely a fashionable way of securing one's identification and avoiding all the hassle of shuffling for ID cards. Because of the high malleability of its component, the silicon bracelet could be altered in many different ways that would enable it to be more useful than an average personalized accessory, its selling point being its stylishness and functionality.
