Having your phone attached to your wrist is not particularly a new thing, but there is an entirely new way to access your phone—with a touch screen on your skin!

Having your phone attached to your wrist is not particularly a new thing (thanks Apple Watch!), but there is an entirely new way to access your phone on your wrist—with a projected touch screen on your skin!

It’s called the Cicret Bracelet, and with it, you can check emails, messages, take phone calls, and even play games. Using eight long range proximity sensors, this little gadget is able to monitor your finger’s movements, making it a working touch screen with all the benefits of a regular phone.

While it essentially mirrors the screen on your smartphone, this is still a huge step up from that boring Apple Watch, which simply links the bare essentials from your phone to an over-sized screen on your wrist. Not to mention, good luck keeping that screen from getting cracked.

It comes in 10 colors and comes in a 16GB or a 32GB version—it’s even water resistant!

According to their website, this neat little wristband-turned-arm-tablet will hopefully be available in 2016 for just $300. 

Could this be the next big step in smartphone technology?
