Coming in memory storage of both 16GB and 32GB, the Cicret bracelet also attains both WiFi and bluetooth. This will allow both online access wherever you go and the ability to connect your other devices, such as your phone, with that of Cicret. If you hear your phone going off, simply twist your wrist, turning the bracelet on, and your phone’s display will be projected on your arm, ready for you to answer immediately.
While there are no promises that this particular product will see the light of day, especially given its heavy price tag in funding, but the prospect of similar technologies to emerge is much more likely. Cicret represents a merging of two of today’s disruptive technologies – augmented reality and wearable computing. Not only are we wearing devices which provide equal computing power to that of our computers, but we’re also starting to merge physical reality with that of virtual reality, creating digital augmentations within the very fabric of matter itself.
Imagine your body a blank canvas ready to come alive with digital upgrades. Not only will you be able to display your online presence over your offline body, soon you’ll be able to augment your entire self with that of digital renderings – skin designs, tattoos, real-time medical data, and so on. Eventually you won’t need wearables to project these renderings on your body, but instead will actually be inside of you via cybernetic implants. You may not see it right now, but Cicret is merely a stepping stone to your future Cyborg transformation.
