Tech Tuesday: Cicret Bracelet Computer


Cicret

Saw this amazing concept computer over the weekend across several tech news apps and knew I had to show it to you on my Tech Tuesday post. But first, a sly update with the Blackberry Passport. Seems they are hearing their detractors and wrote a rebuttal, of sorts. Their response is 11 Things Wrong with the BlackBerry Passport, very tongue-in-cheek, which shows their sense of humor all the while poking fun at the haters. Which makes me want one all the more!

1. A phone is not supposed to have a wide, square screen. The Passport is a WIDE phone with a square screen. BlackBerry’s message is “work wide.” Here it is, next to the iPhone 6. It’s exactly the size of your passport. This clearly shows the size difference between the two phones. It’s definitely “working wide.”

Now, onto the main story in the article, this cicret bracelet computer is quite amazing, though not as amazing as the Nokia Morph that I wanted. According to the Laughing SquidThe Cicret Bracelet is a wrist-worn wearable device that projects the screen of its wearer’s smartphone (via picoprojector that I’ve brought you on previous Tech Tuesday posts) on their forearm, creating a sort of skin-based touchscreen display. The futuristic device, which is currently seeking donations, allows users to interact with their phone’s apps without removing their handset from their pocket. It’s even waterproof, so wearers can interact their smartphone in the tub.

I can see using this while running errands and not wanting to take a tablet or stopping to take a smartphone out of your pocket, or while jogging, wear it next to your fitbit or other fitness tracker. Also ideal for patients on transplant recipients, while wanting for an organ, they could easily set up the cicret to send an alert from the hospital.
