Ritot smartwatch beams notifications directly to your hand
Ritot is the smartwatch answer to our Internet addiction. As if smartphones hadn’t already taken over, here’s a watch that takes connectivity to the extreme by beaming incoming calls, emails and notifications directly onto our hands.
It will also tell you the time, but nobody cares about that – right?
Without a working prototype Ritot has already raised more than $385,000 of its $50,000 goal on the crowd-funding website Indiegogo. It comes in two models: the unisex, aluminum bracelet — available in four sizes and colors (white, black, brown-gold and black-gold) — and the sport band, made of colored plastic (black, white, red, green, blue and yellow). Both models will set you back $120 and will ship to backers in early 2015.
While a digital clock is the main feature of the smartwatch, users can connect the device with their smartphones and receive vibrating notifications and simultaneously a light projection. When you get a new friend request on Facebook, or a response to your Tweet, you’ll see it come up directly on your hand projected from the smartwatch.
Another great feature is the ability to dismiss those notifications with a simple shake of the hand, otherwise they will disappear automatically within just 10 seconds.
The Ritot is compatible with iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices and also comes with a unique wireless charger. When plugged to the charger, it’s possible to select from a range of 20 different colors to light your projections.
To pre-order your Ritot, or to simply find out more, check out the project on Indiegogo.
