Shuri used her Kimoyo Beads to scan Vision's body and project a holographic image of the Mind Stone embedded in his head as she had been tasked with safely removing the Stone without killing Vision. When the Black Order arrived outside of the kingdom's forcefields, Okoye used her Kimoyo Beads to project an image of the Outriders' dropships.
The Kimoyo Beads are specially crafted to serve a multitude of purposes in accordance to what the wearer needs. Different beads have been shown capable of capturing and projecting holographic images and recordings. Their Vibranium composition allows them to be used for medical purposes, such as stabilizing the condition of a wounded Everett Ross. They can also be used to scan a given subject, as Shuri did with Vision's Mind Stone.
The Kimoyo Beads have also been shown to control various types of Wakandan technology, as[Shuri was able to control the Wakandan Maglev Train's systems, activating the train's stabilizers that weakened the defenses of T'Challa's and Erik Killmonger's Panther Habits, respectively.
