Virgin Voyages Wearables Wristband

Project Overview:

Virgin Voyages approached Jaycon with a concept for a new wearable product intended to revolutionize the guest experience aboard their brand new cruise line. The initial design aimed to allow guests to seamlessly open their doors and pay for food and beverages without carrying a wallet, but it was not yet manufacturable.

Jaycon's Solution: Design and Production Expertise

Recognizing the need for a durable and practical solution, Jaycon took the concept and re-engineered it into a product ready for mass production.

This involved: Advanced RFID Integration: Implementing RFID technology within a small bracelet, enabling passengers, or “Sailors,” to unlock their cabins, make purchases, and access onboard experiences effortlessly.

Sustainable Materials: Incorporating yarn made from recycled ocean plastic in the bracelet, aligning with environmental sustainability goals. Innovative Manufacturing Techniques: Developing a new method to injection mold the cord into the plastic housing and effectively seal the electronics, ensuring durability in the harsh maritime environment.

Collaboration and Technical Design

Jaycon collaborated with Mindtribe for the industrial design but took over all the electrical design, design for manufacturing, and the actual manufacturing process. This comprehensive approach ensured that every aspect of the wearable was optimized for functionality, user experience, and manufacturability.

Broadening Industry Impact

Beyond maritime travel, Jaycon demonstrates how similar technologies can revolutionize other industries. For example, integrating RFID technology into wristbands for theme park visitors could enable seamless access to attractions, personalize experiences, and introduce interactive elements within the rides.

Achievements and Impact

Since the launch of the Scarlet Lady and Vigilant Lady cruise ships, Jaycon has manufactured over a million wearables, generating over $4 million USD in revenue and growing annually. This project not only enhanced guest convenience but also set a new standard in wearable technology across the tourism sector


Jaycon’s expertise in design and manufacturing of advanced wearable technologies has not only transformed the passenger experience for Virgin Voyages but also opened avenues for similar innovations across various industries, showcasing the limitless possibilities of interactive experiences.
