Cicret Bracelet release date with scam warning

We’ve had Google’s Glass shock the world with their innovative wearable earlier this year, then Apple followed that up with the unveil of their beautiful Apple Watch a few months ago. Now, another wearable has arrived on the scene, in the form of the Cicret bracelet which claims to offer a virtual Android experience beamed onto your skin without any hardware involved.

It sounds amazing and you’ll probably be gobsmacked once you have finished watching the Cicret Bracelet trailer below. For those that are wondering how the Cicret Bracelet works, it utilises a combination of a Pico Projector, eight motion sensors and accelerometer to make the magic happen.

There’s also tiny other components within the bracelet which will allow for communication with your phone – these include Bluetooth, WiFi component and a built-in vibrator as well.

It all sounds too good to be true though and there are some important notes to consider. At this time, there is no Cicret Bracelet release date in sight so that’s disappointing. There’s also no idea of an initial Cicret Bracelet price to give you an idea either.

This video has created a massive debate so far, with over one million hits on YouTube for the promo video generated. We see that a lot of consumers are asking is the Cicret Bracelet real or fake, but it looks like a genuine product based on the professional marketing in the clip below.

cicret-bracelet-components

The official Circet bracelet website is here, while there’s also a Facebook page that has been set up here. The potentially worrying thing about the product though is that there’s no guaranteed evidence that this dream-like device will ever make it to market.

There’s also no Cicret Bracelet Kickstarter page or any other similar Crowdfunding websites for that matter, despite the fact that the creators are asking for a $1,000,000 USD donation to help build the first prototype and the accompanying Cicret app.

So in simple terms, it looks like the developers are relying on the generosity of the social world for the moment and we can see that they are already 11% clear on their goal.

With no guarantee on whether there will be a confirmed Cicret Bracelet launch date though, it does seem like there are some risks involved if consumers are donating on the assumption that it is coming out. We also couldn’t help but notice that there are some Cicret Bracelet scams appearing on websites such as Ebay, attempting to fool buyers into thinking that the Cicret Bracelet pre-order is already live.

Nevertheless, this is one of the best concepts that we have ever seen for a wearable device. Check out the images and the video below – then let us know what you think about it.

It sounds amazing right, so will you be donating ‘blind’ so to speak?

This product will happen…whether this manufacturer or another. The Syfy show “Incorporated” uses a version of this… and if we have learned anything, if it’s on a science fiction show or movie we will eventually make it (star trek communicators =flip phones..star trek next generation – everyone has I pads and touch screens years before we had it).

Someone will Crack this egg, count on it.

They should be raising money themselves because if someone donated and it doesn’t make it to market then they got ripped off they need to just go do a bake sale or get loans go to shark tank maybe then they can get help and it will be a real product soon

1- They say visible on all skin types.
My friend black ebony disagrees 😉
2- The low energy laser pixels does not exist.
3- if the truth that is already built a piece was easy to find sponsors and the donation would be useless
…..
this donation is a good scam …100%

Gotabooboo states all the flaws in the video with a realistic phone screen, but it says that they are the possibilities, not the real thing. They already have a prototype out by the way, Michael Harris

I don’t care how many hits they got on YouTube, this is a total scam. First of
all, there is no way a picoprojector can have sideways infinite focus. In fact,
I don’t think any of these simulations are possible with today’s
technology, esp. for a consumer product. Why are they bypassing Kickstarter or other crowd-funding
options?

Never mind that, just hit the damn Click Here to Donate button and kiss your Euro good-by….or better yet send ME the money and I’ll make sure it gets to the right place…

Really a good product… If its true, why can’t they show us the 16%(26th jan 2015) work progress as like promo video. They din give us a single reason to believe.

Shadows in the way, lens distortion from a single lens projecting along the z axis, IR sensitivity and depth alignment with the screen, brightness of the image, just so many flaws and hurdles to overcome, not to mention the fact that they lied about their promotional video acting like it is already out in prototype form.

Just another scam with a shiny new video. Caveat Emptor²

Lol the video image on the arm is imposed by someone else, the section where he plays Fruit mania the swipes on the screen don’t follow his swipe. And also the section on the bike handlebar also shows the image moving differently from his gesture.
But if it makes it to fruitation I’ll buy one.

Okay I have a Samsung gear I can record video and take pictures of things without pulling out my phone. Without a microphone or speaker on it I don’t see the point it needs 3 things and then it will crush the competition microphone, speaker and camera and I may even have to switch

sucks for models with boney arms.
i like using both my hands to type or play games on the app. I wouldnt get this even if they give me for free.

It’s pure scam. The video is a simulation, & none of the claimed functions can be achieved with current technology. It /might/ be possible to produce a working prototype of a device like this in ten years, but I wouldn’t bet my own money on it.

WHY CAN’T I BE A SMART PERSON AND UNDERSTAND THIS!? I’M IN 4TH GRADE BUT STILL. 🙁 I UNDERSTAND THAT IT’S PROJECTING A SCREEN AND THAT IT’S KINDA A V.GAME

Looks cool but I wonder how well it would work if you have tattoos around the wrist and forearm area as I do?

How do you project a dark image onto a light surface? You can’t project a black image on any surface and expect it to come out as black unless the surface itself is black.

All was very amusing but part 00:14 till 1:48 sucked a lil bit. as you see you have your projected screen shaking up over the screen or wherever it may be. if it takes so hard for you to rotate the bracelet around, I wonder how can it be so loose that the projected screen shakes up !!

Nobody is going to point out the obvious? Okay, I guess I will try.

They say that they are going to use 8 sensor beams to detect where you are essentially “tapping” on your phone. This won’t work.

They would have to custom build so many pieces of software to work with this setup that there is literally no way they will ever have enough money to get this thing out the door.

It’s a nice thought, but I’d rather wait until Sony/Samsung/Apple decide to try one of these out. Not some no name 3rd party.

Their website is a FREE WordPress account with a WordPress template and has spelling errors in the title! Only two of the pictures shown are not stock and the ones they do use I’m sure are used without Samsung’s permission. “At the beginning, there was a simple sketch…”(stupid napkin drawing) “…then a first moulding.” (stupid plastic mold) “Now it’s a dream we want to share with you.” Pretty sure that is all they did, sketch, mold, PRODUCT!!! and they want 1 million euros to finish the first prototype. This might be somebody’s good idea, but they are trying really hard… Read more »

Can your big bulky home projector to a 30 degree side projection? why you believe there will be a bracelet with tiny LED light and tiny lens can go a perfect 90 degree side projection on an uneven surface like your arm??? Go on! put your money to support the internet funding scam!

So what if you’re dark skinned? How would the color quality be on African-American or Indian toned skin?

The black isn’t actually black it’s a bit like a projector or phone in the dark when the screen is loading you see the light but its not black light its like the color grey but the color is made very dark or the black is that part not projecting light at all

Jonny Bravo

Such a fake. If he touches fingers to the skin there should be no projection behind that finger. On this silly advert, its still there. Perhaps the light is going through?? Could be. Also, Kendal is very right, black is not a light. This is such a b******t!

This can’t work, because you cannot project black. Black is the lack of light, not light.

When I googled Cicret Bracelet review several ads for the braclet popped up including Target, Academy Sports & ABT Electronics. I could understand something on eBay being a scam but these 3 too? Never mind, I re-looked at the ads & they were for Jawbone. However, it appears to be the same concept.

as a computer programmer who also studied physics, I would just like to say beware – Pretty cool idea, apart from the fatal flaw – As you move your fingers in front of the projector, it would cast a shadow. Even without this fatal flaw – responsivity with 8 proximity sensors wouldn’t even approach that of an iphone. And don’t get me started on having to shave your arm … This is clever marketing, and the reason many are crying spam? – do not donate to something which, if real, would have tremendous market potential.
