Smartphone addicts pay close attention to this. You will definitely regret if you miss this.
Say, for example, youre taking a shower or relaxing in a hot bath. Your smartphone is nowhere near your wet, soapy hands. Just then an important email comes in. You either have to ignore the message until youre done or prematurely have to jump out and dry off. Not fun and not convenient.
The inventors of something called Circet (pronounced secret) want to change that. With the simple flick of your wrist, the Cicret bracelet can project your smartphones display onto your forearm. Your arm essentially becomes a fully interactive display — a swipeable, touch-sensitive, full-color one that allows you to read and send emails, get directions, you name it.
And its water-proof, too.
Basically, Cicret lets you do everything you do on your phone on your forearm, palm up or palm down, depending on which way you wear it. Per Cicrets website, you can rock it to Read your emails, play your favorite games, answer your calls, check the weather, find your way…Do whatever you want on your arm.
How it works isnt, well, much of a Cicret, secret. The Cicret Bracelet, designed over the course of 6 months, comprises a pico projector and a row of eight proximity sensors that point towards the users forearm. It operates as a standalone device and, when activated with a twist of the wrist, projects an Android interface onto the users arm.
The proximity sensors detect where the users finger or fingers are and allow them to interact with the interface as they would any other Android device, Gizmag reported.
The device will allow users to send and receive emails, browse the web and play games. It will also be possible for users to pair it with an existing smartphone, answer incoming phone calls and activate the speakerphone functionality on their smartphone.0
