We are Mighty Cast, the team that’s bringing Nex to life. We’re pretty awesome at what we do.

Nex is a fictional product.  Well, at least it used to be.  The original concept for Nex came years back when the multiple Emmy-Award winning co-founders were developing a fictitious fantasy story world called The Mighty Maru.  The story is set in a world of dwindling resources and a swelling disparity in income.  Out of rebellion, a group of kids band together and form a secret society with the goal of making positive change in the world.  In the end, the society members become vigilantes and are forced into hiding.  And the only way they are able to identify, communicate, or disrupt the world with magic is through an enchanted bracelet.

Many felt passionate about the story, more so for the bracelet- “can you create that real magical bracelet and have it do all of those things it does in the story?”.

It was then that we decided to make this imaginary prop a reality.  Since 2012, Nex has been awarded a patent, built partnerships ranging from IoT to jewelry, and has received numerous awards including Engadget’s Reader’s Choice Award and the CES Innovation Award.

We have an offbeat story and now, we’re happy to say, we have a very creative wearable.

We’ve come a long way…
