a new concept SmartWatch called the Lumiwatch created by researchers at the Carnegie Mellon University which uses a projector to display a basic interactive touchscreen display on the wearer's arm the projector SmartWatch takes the form of a self-contained device equipped with a logic board projector depth sensor metal enclosure and battery the Lumi watch SmartWatch features a 15 lumen scanned laser projector providing continuous 2d finger tracking and is powered by a Qualcomm 12 gigahertz quad-core processor supported by 768 megabytes of RAM equipped with 4 gigabytes flash memory and a 740 mile lithium ion battery connectivity is provided by both wireless and Bluetooth technologies and the system is capable of running Google's Android 5

1 operating system in its current format the device is capable of providing up to 60 minutes of continuous projection although with intermittent use the battery should last roughly 24 hours researchers estimate that the price to create the SmartWatch would be around $600 although more refinement would be needed as the prototype SmartWatch is a little bulky measuring 50 millimeters X 41 millimeters x 17 millimeters in size although obstacles remain for practical adoption we believe our work demonstrates the first functional projection SmartWatch system and constitutes a significant advance in the state of the art explains the research paper
