Smart devices are popping up everywhere, but this is the first time we’ve seen when they literally become an extension of yourself: your very arm is the screen.
What you see in these pictures is the Cicret, a bracelet meant to work as an alternative to Google Glass and other smartwatch devices. The Cicret Bracelet by Cicret turns your whole arm into a giant display for your gadgets, ensuring that you never have an issue with a screen being too small again. The gadget projects a mobile’s display over your skin, but also detects touch input so you can keep your phone safely stored in your bag or pockets. Could this be the ultimate solution to dropping your phone in the toilet?
The company has an ongoing campaign on Indiegogo, where a pledge of $399 USD will land you your own Cicret Bracelet. Still, once this stage is over, they expect to sell the bracelets for $600-$700 USD at retail, so if you’re interested at all, it seems quite a deal. The real question, though, is how well this works. Are you willing to jump in, or would you rather wait for the critics to weigh in?
