The Nex Band enables gaming on your wrist

Mighty Cast will release a wearable bracelet that uses Bluetooth technology and Mod charms to provide its users with gaming notifications, among other uses, the developer recently announced.

According to Mighty Cast, the Nex Band works by connecting with cloud technology. Users can swap out different Mod charms — each of which carries different features — to unlock new levels or items in-game. Charms can also be used to represent a "social channel or mobile application."

According to the device's website, pre-orders will be open "soon." Those interested in receiving updates can sign up with an email address. Bands are expected to ship in late 2014.
