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.
I know that major corporations are fighting now for invention of smartwatches. But I feel like they’ve already lost this battle.
Moment Smartwatch: world’s first wrap around smart watch
30 day battery, expandable hardware, full QWERTY keyboard, 360° touch surface – all wrapped smartly around your wrist
This Smartwatch has everything you can ever dream of.
– It is the perfect blend of style and technology
– Keyboard (Patent Pending). The Moment Smartwatch has a full QWERTY keyboard plus number row.
– Battery can last up to 30 days
– Hardware Expansion (Patent Pending)
– Simple Operation (Patent Pending). It has a large touch sensitive surface that wraps all the way around the outside of the Moment Smartwatch – a full 360 degree interface
– Message Board (Patent Pending). Your smartphone has a large beautiful display that is great for sharing pictures, playing games with detailed graphics and many other uses. Moment is not competing with that display. We designed the Moment Smartwatch to be used when it is inconvenient, unnecessary, unsafe, rude or simply not allowed to pull your smartphone from your pocket or purse.
I think we need to fund this, this is a true gold. I’m just amazed how people can create something like this while not working for huge corporations. This is pure brilliance.
