The latest smart watch wants to project notifications from your smartphone and social media profiles directly onto your wrist. Oh, and the time, too.
An Indiegogo campaign for a product billed as the first "projection" watch has crowdfunded over $400,000 on Indiegogo. The page claims that the company has been working on the Ritot design for "over six months."
If the product ever hits the mass market, it'll be available in two versions: Sports and bracelet. Here's how the company behind Ritot claims that it will work.
The uniqueness of the technology lies in pico projector; it allows projecting a dial with high quality graphics and brightness. The watch doesn't have any buttons, except of one touch sensitive button, with what you can manipulate the projection - run a mechanism of temporary (10 sec) or permanent projection.
To activate the projection, users either press a button on the gadget or shake their hand. The projection of the time or notification is projected for 10 seconds before the bracelet goes back to being a bracelet.
The company also claims that the Ritot will be waterproof, have an extended battery life, and that the watch's projected information will be visible during both day and night.
