Ritot smartwatch turns your wrist into a screen

Ritot is a smartwatch that doesn't differ from others in terms of functionality. It shows the time, caller IDs, text messages, social media updates, reminders, weather updates and more. However, there is one catch. It projects every single one of those to your wrist.

Available in two models, Sport and Bracelet, the producers claim the smartwatch is totally safe for health and is powered by a pico projector, allowing for high quality graphics and brightness for projection purposes. A special base is also included in the package for charging needs and it works wirelessly. The base also serves as an alarm clock.

Ritot is said to have an extended operation life and can offer 150 hours of battery life in projection mode, along with a month of operation in stand-by mode. The device comes with only one touch sensitive button. The ten second projection can be activated by either touching this button or shaking the watch. One other notable feature of the watch is that it has vibration support.

Developers state Ritot supports all languages and currently works with iOS, Android and Windows Phone. The notifications can be set from the phone it is used with using Ritot app.

Ritot has already reached its Indiegogo goal and we will see how the prototypes serve in real life situations. One Ritot set containing a watch and a base is currently going for $120 with free worldwide shipping with a shipping estimate around February 2015.

I for one don't like the current watches because they are too large and look kind of ridiculous. This idea on the other hand (other hand.. bahaha) looks really cool. Basic info like time, caller info, and maybe even push alerts in a minimal wrist band is perfect IMO. Anything more than that should be done on the phone anyway because of the screen size. I like it!

Cool! You got to say that's a good gimmick!!

With a bit of polish this could be a better gimmick. Read texts and notifications on your hand as well and I may consider it =).

Probably can be worn the other way around so it projects back up the arm (and so projects on the "wrist"). Seems like a better way to use it than on the hand anyway, for those who dont wear long sleeves often.

Projects on the wrist? Based on the images above, it seems like somebody ditched the biology classes back in school.

Technically the projection comes from the band on the wrist ;)

Yes, it COMES from the wrist, it DOES NOT project on the wrist. The #FacePalm stands :)

Well the official explanation of the watch used "wrist" so I went with the same analogy as well:

"...We are talking about the generation of wristwatches, which project the dial onto your wrist."

"Ritot smartwatch turns your wrist into a screen" -- It does not. It turns the back of one hand's into a screen.

will never consider buying this wearable product will stick with the Apple iWatch if I even like it no one know exactly how it will look like yet.

So... you are going to "stick with" a product that doesn't exist (Unless there is an actual Apple release statement?)? ...over something that's actually being sold?

That's like saying you're going to stick with a unicorn because that pony at the fair is too small... .. .

Is this a "fanboi troll" or are you actually that dense?

eh..

just convert the watch to use bodys electrical power and I will be able to power the watch.

I could never enjoy a watch because they always die on me.

Of course they would. As if it wasn't bad enough that we have to charge our phones once a day, two at best, having to constantly keep an eye out and charge a watch is an added annoyance to an already annoying chore.

What I'm interested in here is sunlight readability. The projection idea sounds good, and it's not really all that expensive, but I'd like to see how these projections fare in bright sunlight.

Seem like a good idea to me. But would people pick battery life over a screen?

Amazing concept, but people like choice. You might not be able to live without a screen, but they are betting enough people can. 150 hours of use/months of standby? I'm tempted by it...

I hear the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite is selling good and its ONLY black and white!
