A Prototype of the mForce Wristband by Metron Force

We were introduced to a company that has created wearable technology entirely inspired by the super powers we see in movies. Metron Force™ is based in Silicon Valley. Like many great ideas there, it all started in a garage. The end result is a wearable device coming soon that gives you super hero-like powers.
