It's a Survival Bracelet... for geeks. Hybrid has both cord and wire woven together.
Everyone is familiar with paracord bracelets - the cleverly woven wearable survival device that instantly unravels into many meters of useful and super strong nylon cord in case of necessity. These are useful for outdoorsy types, but what if you are an indoorsy type with a lot of electronic emergencies? Or a geek in need of a bright wrist decoration that shows off your geekness?
The Solarbotics Repairacord™ Electronics Survival Bracelet is what you need (complimentary pun included). Woven using traditional quick-release paracord weaves, it unravels in seconds, but instead of a regular electronically-inept nylon cord, it packs about 1.2m (4') of a high-quality 24-gauge 40-strand silicon wire. It's wonderfully flexible and surprisingly wearable against the skin.
But should we say (infomercial style) wait - there's more! What good is wire if you can't utilize it properly? For ultimate electronics confidence, you'll find inside of each bracelet's core a payload sleeve containing a 15cm (6") length each of 3mm heat shrink and solder.
Now the only thing that you need is something to solder with. Out in the urban (or not so urban) jungle it could be a coin or a bare nail, which we have successfully tried. There's other hacks showing how to solder with a regular butane lighter.
So with Repairacord you are ready to repair the world - if you need to.
The "Hybrid" version blends the two different diameters of media together in a very visually appealing combination. It sits on your wrist with more visual presence than the "All-wire" version, taking advantage of the additional colors paracord offers. It also protects the exposed silicone wire much better, as the full type-III paracord makes up most of the exposed area.
We have a limited number in our first production run, where we've experimented with color combinations. Unfortunately, we're unable to list every type, but if you care to leave a comment with your order what color theme/weave you'd like, we'll select one that will most closely match your request.
We have two types of weave available: sinnet (first photo right bracelet) and snake (first photo left bracelet).
