Projector Bracelets

The Snowcorn Camera Is Also A Translator and Business Card Scanner

— April 7, 2009 — Tech
I never thought I'd say this, but I really want a Snowcorn! This innovative gizmo is a multi-functional miniature projector, camera and Wi-Fi connector that straps onto your hand like a bracelet, or can be worn around your neck. That means, that with the wave of your hand, you could beam your multimedia, be it photos or video, against any surface. You'll quite literally be able to host your own entertainment show from the palm of your hand!

"The transparent part of this device is a screen that can show basic functions or time and more complicated controls are done by the projected UL," Tuvie notes.

"This device will allow you to scan a business card to include the person’s particulars to your address book via Wi-Fi. Another key benefit of Snowcorn is you can translate a word or phrase that is unfamiliar with you in a book."

The Snowcorn projector bracelet is a concept design from Mac Funamizu.
Trend Themes
1. Multifunctional Projector Bracelets - The Snowcorn device combines a projector, camera, and Wi-Fi connector in a wearable bracelet, disrupting the way multimedia is shared and displayed.

3. Smart Translation and Business Card Scanning - The Snowcorn device's built-in features such as translating unfamiliar words and scanning business cards via Wi-Fi present disruptive innovation opportunities in language learning and contact management.
Industry Implications
1. Consumer Electronics - The Snowcorn projector bracelet introduces a new category of wearable devices that combine multiple functionalities, transforming the consumer electronics industry.
2. Entertainment - The gesture-controlled projection capabilities of the Snowcorn device create new opportunities for immersive entertainment experiences, challenging traditional modes of content display and consumption.
3. Language Learning and Communication - The integration of smart translation and business card scanning features in the Snowcorn device disrupts the language learning and communication industries by offering convenient and efficient tools for language assistance and contact management.
