AW: What's the expected battery life?
GP: It depends on how many functions you're using, but if you're not constantly putting a strain on the Cicret Bracelet, I think it'll be around 24 hours.
AW: Will your finger distort the projected image displayed on your wrist?
GP: We're working on multiple ways to assure that the Pico projector isn't disturbed by one's fingers, like putting the projector very close to the skin and the proximity laser above it. I know that for the engineering department it isn't an issue.
AW: Will there be any monthly fees or extra charges?
GP: No, we're not that kind of business.
AW: Is it open source?
GP: Yes, we plan on making it open source for developers interested in making their own apps.
AW: What's the future of Cicret?
GP: We have an ambitious idea that will be way more incredible than the Cicret Bracelet. For now, we'll be focusing on our Cicret Bracelet. We are already working on the next thing to come.
AW: Anything else you want to say to the millions of people interested in your creation? People who look up to you?
GP: If you have an idea, you need to make it real. Life is too short. Just try it. People can't insult you if you're trying. If it's working, it's for you. This is what I believe.
The waterproof bracelet is in pre-production with a protoype in the works, however the company intends to release the final product globally in 2015 for €300 ($365, £234, AU$450) to €400 ($487, £313, AU$600) due to Pommier seeing high demand across the world.
The wearable is also priced far lower than Google Glass because Pommier states "I want the bracelet to be available for everyone." He also notes the team has partnered with component manufacturers to get fair prices for parts in order to make the product affordable.
The Cicret Bracelet seems like such an ambitious endeavor that it's hard to believe it will stay on track to release next year. Perhaps the bracelet will simply become another blip in technology history, or maybe it will significantly impact the future of wearable tech. Regardless, our interest has been piqued, and we're curious to see what the final wearable will be like.
