What is a connected Rakhi

The connected Rakhi comes with a QR code that helps the sister to download an app. After signing up, the sister can upload a voice clip of their brother’s promise through the app. The sister then ties the connected Rakhi on the brother’s arm, while it is paired with her phone. If the brother moves away from her or tries to leave, her phone plays the brother’s audio recording where he promised to spend the day with her, in loop, until he comes back to her.
