razer nabu 640x359Earlier this year at CES 2014, Razer announced their first wearable which comes in the form of the Razer Nabu. The Nabu is not a smartwatch and appears to be more of a band, and perhaps to capitalize on China’s growing economy and the demand for wearables, Razer has recently announced that they will be bringing the Nabu over to China.

This will be a collaborative effort between Razer and a handful of companies, such as Tencent, Tencent Games, JD.com, Banyan Tree Hotels and Resorts, and FISE World. The Razer Nabu is expected to be made available in Q4 2014 this year, so if you’ve had your eye on the device, you can expect to get your hands on one later this year.

This is according to an internal memo (pictured above) which shows that McDonald’s is getting ready to start training their staff on the new system, which as you can see in the image above will take advantage of NFC to facilitate these payments.

Sure, Apple’s made some tweaks here and there, some visual changes, but it’s safe to say that OS X Yosemite could be the biggest visual overhaul to date.
