The company Acer has presented “smart” rosaries, capable of counting the number of read mantras. The figure is displayed on the screen of the smartphone, and the Buddhist can know exactly how diligent he is. Counting is carried out due to the chip installed in the rosary, which determines the movement of the cord with beads in the hands.
In the future, Acer intends to add new features – for example, the function of contactless payments. In addition, rosary be able to work on the principle of a buyer’s card, accumulating discounts for purchases in Buddhist stores.
As reported by The Verge, “smart” rosaries are available only in Taiwan, here they will cost $ 132.
