Your skin could be a smartphone display

Your skin could be a smartphone display

New York: A wearable device that projects the image of a Android tablet on your skin will be a reality soon.

Once worn on your wrist, a small light beam on the device, known as the Cicret Bracelet, would project your Android homepage right on your forearm.

Basically, your arm essentially becomes a fully interactive display – swipeable, touch-sensitive and full-colour – that allows you to make or receive phone calls and read and send emails, the Entrepreneur reported.

The promo video explains that the device uses an embedded system that includes a microprocessor, a memory card, a micro USB port, a small battery, a Bluetooth chip, a wi-fi chip as well as a LED light.

The memory card comes in either 16 GB or 32 GB format and with 10 different colours.

A beta version of the free app is available on Google Play.

The Cicret development team is currently seeking to raise $1 million to get its project off the ground.
