You always worry not to drop,scratch or break your tablet, have it stolen, forget it somewhere, or drop it in the water while taking a bath. Well, why not wear it on your hand making your skin the touchscreen or, better said, the touchskin?
Thanks to the Cicret Bracelet features a pico projector and eight rows of proximity sensors which point towards the forearm. The device is activated with a twist of the wrist and it acts as a standalone device projecting an Android interface onto the skin. As the user interacts with the image projected, the proximity sensors determine the execution command or the gesture action.

The gadget is expected to hit the market in 16GB and 32GB models. The user will be able to play games, browse the web, send and receive emails, pair with a smartphone, activate the speaker and answer incoming calls on the smartphone.
Cicret co-founder Guillaume Pommier says that the bracelet will pick-up where Google Glass left off and expects the product to hit the market in about one year and a half for the approximate price of $450. Wearable technology continue to amaze us and we rejoice at the possibility of turning science fiction into reality. The final Cicret Bracelet is expected to support both iOS and Android.
