Why Shuri Wears the Beads in Black Panther Wakanda Forever?

The beads Shuri wears are called Kimoyo Beads, are made of vibranium, and have many uses, including being a communication device, having medical purposes, scanning any subject or place, knowing where someone is, or having control of Wakandan technology. In the movie, Everett Ross (Martin Freeman) finds Shuri’s beads after she gets captured by the Talokan and uses them to communicate with Queen Ramonda (Angela Basset) and Okoye (Danai Gurira). 

In the MCU, the beads are used as a communication hologram device to save Everett Ross after he’s been shot and to scan Vision’s (Paul Bettany) whole body and project an image of how embedded in his head is the Mind Stone.

Every Wakandan gets its own Kimoyo Beads at birth, and additional beads can be added, depending on the abilities and work of its wearer. They’re called Kimoyo Beads because “Kimoyo” means “of the spirit” in Bantu.
