Samsung smartwatch that projects an interface on your hand



Smartwatch makers have tried a few ways to overcome the limitations of a tiny wrist-worn screen, such as gestures, pressure sensitivty or voice commands. Samsung thinks there might be a better way, though: moving the display beyond the watch. It's applying for a patent on a concept that would project a wearable's interface on to everything from your hand to the wall. It'd use sensors to detect those outside-of-the-wrist interactions, and it could even detect the geometry of your hand to adapt the interface to that area. You might see extra buttons on your fingers if your palm is open.




The company has filed for the patent, which was published on United States Patent and Trademark Office's official website shows details of how the smartwatch is expected to work.

The new technology will work in tandem with three components: A camera, an image projector, and processor. The image projector will display the second screen on your arm and the camera will capture all the interactions with the additional screen while the processor relays the information between the camera and image projector.

While this is just a patent — and there's no certainty that Samsung is developing this technology — it's cool to think we could soon be getting some more functionality out of smartwatches' tiny screens.
