    Shame it's a fake.
    Perhaps if the bracelet was 3cm thick then it might be able project those angles.

    It's a "real" product in that it is entirely possible with current technology, but it's "fake" in that the images in the video are all motion tracking overlays.
    It's simply crowdsourcing funds to develop a concept.
    It probably won't work because in most people the tendons in the wrist pronounced, so there would be a long shadow in the projected image.
    But it's a cool idea -

    Look close and it does look as if the bracelet does have at the very least, a diode, facing the projection. As Steve said, this technology has been available for awhile. Have you ever seen the projected keyboard? Projectors are getting smaller
    every year. I don't see tendons as a problem, just use your upper wrist and not the bottom.

    I have to get a shave.
    Shave? Your face looks fine.
    Ya, I know. Gotta shave my arm so I can see my phone. :lol:

    Second look at video you can see it is a fake video.
