I just have to share this new discovery. The Cicret Bracelet, which turns your arm into a touchscreen.
See for yourself below
The Cicret comes with an embedded memory card, processor, accelerometer, vibrator, USB port, Bluetooth functionality, and Wi-Fi, but the main part is a pico-projector and an array of proximity sensors.
The projector allows the armband to beam the screen down onto the users arm, with the proximity sensors tracking finger movement to enable interaction with the content.
The video below demonstrates a mockup and gives an idea how Cicret will be realized
Although this project is not presented on Kickstarted, the team behind Cicret has a page http://www.cicret.com/wordpress/ where they are collecting donations. The team needs 700 00o euros.
So far they’ve reached only 14%, but I really hope they’ll succeed. So we can all buy this bracelet someday.
