Rufus Cuff EXO protects wearable communicator

Rufus Labs announced the release of the Rufus Cuff EXO, a protective exoskeleton for the Rufus Cuff wrist communicator. Attaching the EXO to the Rufus Cuff body allows the wearable device to be water-submersible, impact-resistant, and rugged for industrial use.

The EXO provides protection while adding only 1.5 mm body thickness to the Rufus Cuff. It will be completely water-submersible for extended periods of time, without the need of a plastic screen cover, giving users access to the full 3.2-inch Gorilla Glass touchscreen. Optional screen skins for the Rufus Cuff can be used to provide added protection. With the EXO locked in place, the Rufus Cuff will still give users full access to the speaker, microphones, camera and LED functionality.

Warehouse workers can use the functionality of a full Android KitKat wrist-worn device with rugged protection. In emergency situations, the EXO shields the Rufus Cuff from water, dust, and harsh environments and allows first responders to use the Rufus Cuff’s 3.2 inch Capacitive Touchscreen to communicate with a full keyboard and access critical data. With add-on industrial bands made of reinforced Velcro and Kevlar, the Rufus Cuff can be customized.

“The protective exoskeleton offers workers in a wide range of industries from warehouses to airports the ability to increase their efficiency through the hands-free functionality and water-, drop-, impact-, and shock-proof protection. We made a device fit for a superhero and we’ve given it armor.” said Gabe Grifoni, co-founder of Rufus Labs.

Users with an EXO on their Rufus Cuff can stream live footage from their wearable camera to their wrist and access video functionalities in a range of conditions. Touted as a wrist communicator, the Rufus Cuff is a wearable computer capable of running full apps, working standalone using its WiFi, and connecting to other smart devices.
