Bracelet transforms wrist into a touchscreen

A bracelet that turns skin into a smartphone style interface is on the cusp of mass development after its developers promised a prototype in a matter of weeks. The Cicret bracelet incorporates a pico-projector and eight proximity sensors to display an interface on the back or the front of the user's wrist and support touch interaction.

The video in this story shows multiple consumer applications but the bracelet could also be used to access control interfaces or presentation materials in the professional environment.

Cicret says the product will be available in 16 and 32 GB versions and is durable and waterproof.

It is a similar concept to Microsoft’s Sikinput system but demonstrates a product that can be deployed in a small and ergonomic format.
