It looks like a lot of people are itching to try out the Razer Nabu as the company received over 250,000 sign ups for its beta program. The company now has to narrow that number down as just 500 people will be participating in the beta test.
However, we don’t know how many of those people actually read the terms and conditions of being accepted. Beta participants will have to buy their Nabu smartband for $1 and will then be expected to run through tests and provide detailed reports on their experience with the product in order to identify any bugs before releasing the final product- It is a pretty serious beta test, not just a giveaway.
“It is extremely heartening that we received this many applicants for the Razer Nabu Beta Program,” said Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan in a statement. “It is overwhelming proof that what people want right now more than anything is to have a hand in developing a wearable completely with their needs in mind.”
Razer actually extended the deadline for beta applicants due to the sheer amount, previously sign ups were due to close on the third of July but that date was pushed back until today. Razer revealed the Nabu smartband at CES this year alongside project Christine, Nabu garnered a lot of interest and earned a few trade show awards.

KitGuru Says: Did any of you guys sign up for the Razer Nabu beta? I haven’t had a chance to try out any wearables yet so I don’t know how useful they could be in regular day to day life. What do you guys think of wearables? Anybody tried one yet?
