Smart wristband turns your arm into a touchscreen

A tech company out of France has come up with a mart bracelet that projects a touchscreen onto your arm.

The Cicret Bracelet works by way of a tiny embedded projector and a series of proximity sensors and similar to the tech behind projected keyboards, the Cicret system detects the location and movement of your fingers, essentially turning the surface of your skin into a touchscreen, Discovery News reported.

The device, which allows the user to tap, swipe and pinch, is designed to run a standalone version of Android, or it can be paired with a smartphone via Bluetooth.

Built-in Wi-Fi provides connectivity, and there’s a micro USB port as well. Cicret also makes the Cicret App, a security program that provides anonymity and encryption options for mobile devices.

Cicret co-founder Guillaume Pommier told Gizmag that the company expects to have the Cicret to market in about a year and a half, with a price point of around $400.
