January 29, 2015 — With the Cicret bracelet, Google Glass is officially history. Follow the link and you’ll see why. It even usurps the latest generation of Star Trek communicators. It is what every Millennial is salivating over (and this editor as well).
While still in conceptual stages, is this the future of smart…skin? Becomes the embodiment of what smart communicators will look like one day (just before they become embedded under the skin). And it is nothing more than a wearable bracelet integrated with the latest small cell technology; Wi-Fi, RF identification, near field communications, even DAS.
The concept isn’t even that far-fetched. The real hurdle will be to have it project onto the skin, regardless of wrist position or environment (moisture, sunlight, all the things that challenge smart screens).
This, however, really has the “cool” factor. At least until neural implants with ubiquitous wireless interconnects arrive on the scene.
