    The only thing is... it`s just an idea, it doesn`t actually exist yet. Currently estimated release is 2020, have fun waiting.

    Interesting concept, but wouldn`t it be really annoying to look at that screen with a bulbous division in the middle?

    Given how many watches I ruined catching them on door jambs or otherwise hitting them by accident, I don`t think this would be an option for me.

    The same idea that folds into a pocket or holster would be better for me.

    Hm.. i have a feeling that it will be here within 10 years, and that it`s name will be iSomething. Maybe looking a little different, but the mini-portable computer using a type of proojection technology that doesen`t require a "canvas" if you will - is coming for sure :-)Maybe the secon or even the 1st version will be 3d. - that would be cool :-)

    This reminds me of that episode of Futurama where all the robots rebel and Leela`s bracelet thing tells her to wash her wrist every now and again.

    I can only imagine how hot and sweaty it must get under that thing.

    Let me point out the technical fail with this:
    Bendable battery
    No heat dissipation
    That bump in the middle has got to die
    Too small to have a processor, memory, hard drive (or whatever) space, a projector, and a touch screen

    Also not how fake looking the hands are, I call BS upon this.

    "The hands look fake"

    Notice in panel 3 they are see-through. Please don`t get all self-righteous and skeptical... this is clearly a computer generated image. And I don`t think anyone was pretending it was anything else.
