Vatican News states that the new device “serves as a tool for learning how to pray the rosary for peace in the world.”
“Aimed at the peripheral frontiers of the digital world where the young people dwell, the Click To Pray eRosary serves as a technology-based teaching tool to help young people pray the Rosary for peace and to contemplate the Gospel. The project brings together the best of the Church’s spiritual tradition and the latest advances of the technological world.”
The device contains 10 rosary beads made of black agate and hematite, as well as a ‘smart cross’ that stores all of the tech and data.
It also seems to have gotten the motion sense memo that the Google Pixel 4 laid down this week. Designed to be worn as a bracelet, you can activate it by making the sign of the cross.
This gives the user a choice to pray the standard rosary, a contemplative rosary or other thematic variations that will get updated each year.
The rosary will them begin to track your prayer progress throughout the mysteries and notes each rosary completion.
The eRosary syncs to a free companion app (available on iOS and Android) that also contains audio guides, images and personalised content.
It also fits into the wider ‘Click To Pray’ project, which is a Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network initiative.
The device comes with a 15 mAh wireless charging station and 2.5 hours of charge will get you four days of use.
The ‘Click To Pray eRosary’ is available now from Acer’s international store of all places. It costs â‚¬99,00.
