The BitBand story
The rumors are true. Atlassian, your favorite software company, is getting into the hardware business. Our goal has always been to empower developers to build better software, together. So we asked ourselves: Why not gamify it? With a wearable?
The Atlassian BitBand takes all the things you do every day, tracks them, and compares your statistics to those of your teammates. It's like sports! Except you don't have to actually move, or talk to anyone, and you hate sports anyway, and... wait, who thought of this "team" analogy for developers in the first place?
Will this track the number of times per day I check my OKCupid inbox?
Was the BitBand tested on Animals?
No, but it was tested by a guy in an animal costume
Where is the BitBand manufactured?
We aren't exactly sure, we bought it at Target
Will the BitBand give me a rash?
Probably. We recommend pledging at the $100 level to make sure yours comes with the steroid cream.
What is Oculus Rift?
Oculus Rift is unrelated to the BitBand. Seriously, you need to focus.
Is this real?
