More beast technology coming up...
From Apple’s forthcoming smartwatch to the Fitbit, there is fierce competition to get consumers hooked on wearable devices.
And soon there will be a bracelet that turns your skin into a touchscreen using a tiny built-in projector.
Wearers of the of the Cicret bracelet will be able to check an email or watch a film that’s projected onto their forearm, and control the picture by using their skin like a touchscreen.
A rival for the Apple Watch? Wearers of the of the Cicret bracelet will be able to check an email or watch a film that’s projected into their forearm, and control the picture by using their skin like a touchscreen (pictured)
The makers of the device, who are currently raising money to put it into production on their website, say it can do anything a phone or tablet can, allowing wearers to read emails, surf the web, watch videos, play games and even make phone calls without relying on a conventional screen.
A tiny projector in the bracelet will cast an image onto the skin then eight long-range proximity sensors will detect every swipe, tap and pinch.
The bracelet will also contain a USB port and accelerometer as well as supporting Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
While it will be made so it can sync with an iPhone, it's designed to be a stand-alone device.
The device (pictured) looks a tiny bit like the Jawbone Up but is not focused on fitness, instead aiming to be a replacement for a smartphone - even allowing people to make and receive calls
