What exactly is going on today in the ever-changing world of wearables?  There's very little counter-argument to the fact that we are becoming more and more addicted to our smartphones. If you're able to go an entire day and night without it…well, we commend you for your self-discipline. For the overwhelming majority of us that are addicts, here's a new gadget that will turn your world upside down.

Cicret | New Wearables Fashion

Cicret (pronounced “secret”) is a bracelet that projects your smartphone's display onto your forearm, allowing you to check your e-mails, play Words With Friends, and text your pals back in THE SHOWER! This gadget projects a fully swipeable, touch-sensitive, a full-color display for you to have access to your apps anytime, anywhere.

Wearables | How It Works

The snap-on device uses an embedded system that includes a mini projector, a microprocessor, and eight long-range proximity sensors. It also comes equipped with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, micro USB port, battery, and LED light components.

Unfortunately, Cicret is still only in prototype mode. Cicret's Paris-based developers say they need to raise about $1.2 million dollars to make this project a reality. A Beta version of the free app is available on Google Play.

Cicret is just one of millions of electronic devices or products that make up the Wearable Electronics and Technology Market. According to MarketsandMarkets, the industry is projected to grow at a CAGR of 24.56% from 2014 to 2020 (approximately $11.6 Billion).
