Aria is a hands free controller for your smartwatch - in case you are really lazy

Wearables are here, in case you hadn't noticed, and for the most part that means super smart watches on your wrist which can tell you all the things that your phone is also telling you. Except not in your pocket.

Interacting with these smartwatches is generally very simple, with an intuitive touchscreen or button interface you can check notifications on the screen, send quick text responses or even do a Google search using the built-in microphone.

But if the idea of actually touching and interacting with your smartwatch fills you with high levels of disgust, then the Aria is here to help. It's a gesture controller for wearables.

Yes, it makes it possible to interact with your wearable by moving your hand around without touching the screen. Because this is important for some reason. Here's the video evidence.

Firstly, it totally looks like you're a crazy person who is trying to click their fingers and failing miserably. Over and over.

Secondly, we just don't understand the point here. There might be select situations where you just can't use your other hand but the whole point of having a wearable is that you use it for short bursts of interaction, a way of keeping yourself removed from constantly having to check your phone. The added hassle of having to remember which gestures to use, and hope that the little included device works just seems to take away from the simplicity of that ethos.

Still, if you want one the Aria is starting at $69 and you can keep up to date with the product here.
