Ritot: A Smartwatch Concept that Displays Notifications on the Skin

Ritot is a slim wearable band that projects notifications onto user’s hand. Made of plastic and rubber, it will come in three color variations (black, white, or black and white)  and two styles (classic Ritot or the sportier version). The product will go live in 2015 and initially, both models will be available at a price of USD 120.

When users connect the device with their smartphones then Ritot will pop up vibrating notifications on their hand and notifications will automatically disappear in 10 seconds or users can shake their hand to dismiss the notifications.

The smartwatch is compatible with iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices, also comes with a wireless charger and is expected to set to display in over 20 colours to meet your style and preferences. it is also capable of providing notifications on incoming Caller ID, text messages, reminders, meetings, emails, Facebook, Twitter, calendar appointments and is equipped with a silent vibrating alarm and timer.

Ritot’s developers explain :

“It’s been a long time since the mankind has stopped peering into the sky at the sun to calculate the time. Clocks were invented for this purpose. The first clock was created thousands of years ago. There were various types of clock, including sundial, clepsydra, hourglass and others. 

Since then, the evolution of clock has continued and brought to us the first wristwatch. Every year there emerge dozens of new models of wirstwatches, but the operating principle has not changed.

 We live in a new progressive millennium; everything around us progresses and develops. In our opinion, clock design should be both technically innovative and fashionable. Watches demonstrating that humanity does not stand still. These are the watches we bring into life.”

The Ritot watch project is currently over after raising the USD 375,000 on the crowdfunding website Indiegogo, also planning to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production.

VR-Zone says: The Indiegogo campaign has targeted USD 50,000 and is currently at USD 299,126, exceeding the target by 498 percent still with 36 days left. Having breached its first stretch goal, the team is offering Ritot at several new colors. The next stretch goal ($400,000) will incorporate fitness-tracking features into the smartwatch.

Backers get the smartwatch for $120, while $200 gets you a pair. Three watches sell for USD 285, while USD 450 gets you five sets. As with most crowd-funding campaigns, however, the price might be a bit steep for a device that does considerably less than other smartwatches like the Samsung Gear 2 series (which starts at USD 200). However, the wrist-projection technology is certainly a novelty and could be an interesting way to show information from wearable devices in the future.

Slash Gear says: Unfortunately, it’s a pretty vacuous concept. There is no working model we know of, and no APIs we can find to let anyone design for the concept. Their bold campaign notes they’ll start shipping to backers starting early next year, though, so it will be interesting to see how Ritot fits into a wearables market with a more mature Android Wear and — hopefully — some sort of Apple design in the market.

Geeky Gadgets says: Ritot has been designed to be the worlds first projection watch and as you can see from the image above it projects the time onto the top of your hand rather than having a specific watch face. Ritot has been inspired by future technologies with the aim of providing users an original timepiece and is absolutely safe to be used on your skin.
