Sgnl is a South Korean startup that allows you to call and answer calls with your fingertips (featured image). Don’t believe it? Check the link above. Silicon Luxembourg had the chance to sit down with the Sgnl team at VivaTech and try it out ourselves. A special watch strap, interchangeable with almost any watch face, transfers vibrations into your fingertip so you can talk on the phone without having to pull out your phone. In other words, you can take your favorite watch and turn it into a phone with the Sgnl strap!
