The Future’s Here Now: This Bracelet Turns Your Arm Into Touch Screen Tablet

Smartphones, tablets, smart watches—these are all ancient history now.

 

The future is (nearly) here in the form of the Cicret Bracelet.

This is the most advanced technology to date, like something out of a sci-fi movie.

Developed by French startup company Cicret, the bracelet projects electronic images onto your forearm, basically turning your skin’s surface into a touchscreen Android tablet.

The bracelet has a projector and eight sensors, which are designed to monitor and process finger movements, such as swipes and taps. The sensors also activate the device, which you turn on by flicking your wrist.

Among the many standard features, such as email and web access, the bracelet will offer an accelerometer and a Micro USB port, and will be WiFi and Bluetooth ready. A small LED is installed for notification purposes, although you can also opt to have the bracelet vibrate for alerts.

But perhaps the best feature is there is no screen to shatter, saving you any worries about dropping the device.

Cicret has been developing this device for nearly a year, and will release the first prototype at the end of December.

The bracelet will come in 10 colors and two versions, 16 GB and 32 GB. They plan to have the final product in stores within the next year and a half.

Having had many eclectic experiences and expressing interest in so many varied things in life has suited my role as Editor-in-Chief of Vision Times. Being trained in the sciences, I worked in the medical field. Scuba diving was a passion, being part owner of a scuba shop, and I enjoyed diving around the world. Raising reptiles of all sorts, including poisonous snakes, was also one of my hobbies when living in the U.S. After moving to Australia in the 80s, I became an avid organic grower of tropical fruits and vegetables, which my wife and I partake of year-round, as well as many of our friends. My newest endeavor has been to become a “bikie” — an eBikie, which I do every day not only to get exercise, but also to have a break from slaving over my computer most of the day. Obviously, China is also a passion, which is something VT specializes in, so I feel very fortunate to have a role here at Vision Times.
