When I began writing Innerscape, I had a lot of fun dreaming up the kind of tech I, personally, would like to use.
One of those wanna-have gadgets was something I called the ‘chrono’. Essentially, my idea was that a truly useful wearable would be able to project an image or a holo above the wrist so that short-sighted people wouldn’t have to squint all the time. Well….
The Cicret bracelet [pronounced ‘secret’] literally projects an image of your smartphone onto your wrist. You can then manipulate that ‘image’ exactly as you would a real, physical smartphone.
Not exactly as good as my chrono but…in Innerscape the chrono isn’t invented until about 2060. Colour me egg-on-face. But also happy. My thanks to the Offspring for this tip.
p.s. Sorry, you can’t buy one yet, but one day you’ll be able to select a bracelet from ten gorgeous colours, including fire engine red. Get in the queue behind me. 😉
