This bracelet-like device displays content right onto your skin which allows you to use your apps, access content and interact with your smartphone on your body. The device will also be waterproof which means you will be able to use it while you are relaxing in the bath.
How It Works
The Cicret bracelet uses 8 proximity sensors that detect the position of your fingers and a pico projector which projects your smartphone onto your body. You will then be able to swipe, type and pinch in the same way you would on your smartphone or tablet.
The Cicret bracelet has an LED display for notifications, accelerometer, a micro USB post and will be Bluetooth and WiFi enabled. The bracelet is expected to use a new technology that will put your SIM details into the hardware, which means you won’t need to get an additional SIM card for the bracelet. You will be able to sync your bracelet with your smartphone via Bluetooth, allowing you to answer calls, send texts, etc.
If the project goes ahead you will be able to turn on the projector with a flick of your wrist, which will then display a smartphone on your skin.
The project was on Indigogo before, but was pulled for a revamp and the founders are now accepting donations directly on their website. The founders of Cicret explain that they require €700,000 to create the first prototype and an additional €300,000 for the Cicret App. If they are successful in raising the funds, the bracelet is set to be available in about 18 months in two sizes (16 and 32 GB) and in 10 different colours. The expected price tag of the bracelet is $400 (about R4 705.70).
